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.

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.

I thinkk some people on here are more likely to know the answer than the facebook crowd: How do you sex a Daspletosaurus?

Re: sexing a dinosaur.

Perhaps you could try the approach used in this paper to find characteristics of avian medullary bone?

Sometimes I feel we're keeping a whole glue factory in buisness while working on this critter.

New blog post: we're finally getting back around to prepping the big Daspletosaurus Pete III
You all deserve a brief respite from the dead fish and Avaceratops update barrage. What better excuse to talk about our big Daspletosaurus Pete III then? It's about the only dinosaur we have that people tend to ask about anyw...

Skeletons and Bones  - 
 
3d printing has come a long way. The only parts of the jaw on the left that were recovered at the Ava site were the splenial and a partial angular. We scanned the individual bones from the other jaw, printed them out, then assembled all the parts. I think it ended up working pretty well, plus I don't have to sculpt anything.

Yeah, 3D printing is awesome. We were going to try to use it when we reconstructed the Supersaurus at the WDC, but the cost was a bit too high then (back in the halcyon days of the 2000-aughts).

Some cool new research. Well, not exactly new, the specimen and the skin was discovered way back in the 1950s. It's great to see these mosasaurs getting fleshed out though. Helps us start to answer the little questions.
