Answer this Oklahoma trivia question to receive awesome prizes!

Test your Oklahoma knowledge and win prizes by answering our weekly Tuesday Trivia question. Every week, we’ll choose a winner from the correct respondents to receive a prize—from an Okie sticker to a subscription to Oklahoma Today and more.

Tornadoes. Chicken-fried steak. Dinosaur bones. If you're associating the first two with Oklahoma but not the last one, then let us introduce you to Acrocanthosaurus atokensis. With powerful back legs, a giant mouth full of deadly teeth, and tiny little arms, it's not hard to see the resemblance to a slightly better known dinosaur—Tyrannasaurus Rex. One of the most-complete skeletons of the 40-foot-long Acrocanthosaurus atokensis was found in Atoka, less than twenty miles from Idabel's Museum of the Red River, which displays a skeletal recreation. Scientists think the acro was the fourth-biggest meat-eating dinosaur of the Mesozoic Era.

Get There
Museum of the Red River, 812 E Lincoln Rd Idabel, OK 74745 or TravelOK.com

Correctly name one of the three species of meat-eating dinosaurs larger than Acrocanthosaurus atokensis and you could win a prize from Oklahoma Today.
