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.

Woot! We have a skeleton! And as an added bonus, it's no longer right in my way in the lab anymore!
Just for the weekend, the prototype cast of our Daspletosaurus Pete III (RMDRC 06-005) will be shown off in the atrium of the museum, before it gets decent photographs and heads to its forever home. Yes, it has a 2006 specime...

It's always both cool and frustrating working on a prototype of a cast.

Daspletosaurus Assembly: Building a Frightful Lizard

Very interested in Pete III personally. Daspletosaurus is among my favorite species and I find this particular individual interesting considering it's potential size.

Everyone loves a little tail
Or even a huge one. Just wanted to share some cool pics we took of Pete III's 5.1m long (17 foot) tail. Caudal 1 is missing from this layout (it was still in the pelvis jacket), so add on another 18cm or so. Not too shabby Jacob, our living 2m scalebar The ...

Pete III finished. For now.
Just for the weekend, the prototype cast of our Daspletosaurus Pete III (RMDRC 06-005) will be shown off in the atrium of the museum, before it gets decent photographs and heads to its forever home. Yes, it has a 2006 specimen number. The original site as f...

A day in the life of a Daspletosaurus bone
Some people asked me not too long ago about what we do in order to get some of these bones ready for molding. In the case of Pete III, our Daspletosaurus from Montana, the condition of the bone gave us some additional problems. All specimens of course get e...
