DINOSAURS RULE!!!

Digging up dinosaur bones in Montana - who could ask for anything more?

The setting.


Triceratops rib bones.


Triceratops skull frill and brain case.


Preparing plaster and burlap strips for jacketing.


Jacketing a Torasaur skull frill.


Lying next to Crichtonsaurus - a small Ankylosaur that we would be working on repairing and putting on display in the museum.


After gluing, sanding, priming and painting, drilling the Crichtonsaurus cast.


The bulk of the vertebrae and head strung on rebar, nearly ready to assemble!

Famous site of the first T-Rex EVER discovered and excavated - back in 1902.

It deserved a jump!

The picture where you are drilling and someone is holding the item looks awfully dangerous.
