Very helpful front desk staff and within walking distance of tons of attractions. The rooms were very clean and well kept, they look like they had been renovated very recently, especially the bathrooms. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Pete III's arms are now up and on display in the museum. Beefier and bigger than the full grown rex behind it. I can't wait to get to mount this on the whole skeleton.

Daspletosaurus reconstruction progressing: Pete III
You know, I think I'm just going to share some pictures as an update to my last blog post . We'll keep the reading part short and sweet. Restoration is coming along well. The skull is up next, and in the meantime we have the leg finished and the arms almost...

Getting Pete III's leg ready for molding and prototyping of the missing side. Table is 8 feet long. For all you nerds on carnivoraforum that argue about this Daspletosaurus, you can't use typical das/tyranno proportions to estimate the size of this critter. It's very different than the Alberta material.

Ava Restoration Update: March
Reconstruction of the skull started with 40 individual bones Whether they are big or small, all ceratopsians sure do have a lot of parts. When they are juveniles like our Avaceratops , the lack of fusion in bones makes that even more apparent. For example, ...

Dinosaurs coming out my wazoo!
If you've been following the progress of our Avaceratops (or something like it) project, you may have noticed a lull in updates, especially after the completion of the reconstruction of the skull about a year ago. This is abo...

Actual Mosasaurus from Kansas
Mosasaurs in Kansas, no big deal, there are thousands of specimens known. But what about the actual genus " Mosasaurus "? As recently as 1967, Dale Russell's excellent mosasaur book claimed " Mosasaurus ivoensis " was present in the Niobrara. Since then, Jo...

Daspletosaurus Pete III's leg now molded and cast. It turned out a lot taller than I imagined it would.
