The beautiful Dwayne Johnson has a few things to say about a giant T-rex skull.

In a recent post to the actor’s Instagram, the Jungle Cruise actor tells his fans the truth about the giant dinosaur skull that stole the show on the Manningcast.

“After my LIVE interview on last night’s #ManningCast on @NFL’s Monday Night Football, there’s been tons of worldwide speculation in the world of science ~ that I am the “mystery buyer” of the original T-REX skull, known as STAN.

“I am not the mystery buyer. In my home office, this is my REPLICA CAST of STAN that I had made and purchased from my friends at The Black Hills Institute of Geological Research and Paleontological Excavations.”

After sharing a picture of the makers or the replica, Johnson then goes on to discuss the significance of the real dinosaur skull.

“In science, this T-REX skull is considered to be the most perfectly preserved skull ever found. Bones of this beautiful beast were perfectly pristine.”

After finishing his post, Johnson wraps up his speech.

“Well fans, now you know! The former wrestler goes on to discuss the original skull and to remind us that Stan is “a f–king bad ass.”

Yes, Dwayne Johnson. Yes, you are.
