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.

Our newest little turtle: Jubal
Apparently TPI is the new home for the small turtles of the Niobrara chalk. We've already prepared, molded and cast our tiny Chelosphargis advena , Prepared a new Prionochelys matutina , and show prepped a nice Toxochelys latiremis that we discovered this p...

Avaceratops layout
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 about to change. Skull elements pre...

I would have been even closer with my intended Dasbootosaurus.

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

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.

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...

Arms are making progress. Now mounted and going into paint today. Next up is skull. Anyone have a decent Daspletosaurus .stl file?
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 l...
