A bunch of other awesome bones for the hotel were delivered a few months ago to the Morrison Natural History Museum since the lobby at the hotel wasn't finished yet! Any guesses as to what is inside of the crate?
I hate to say it, but your guesses were probably wrong. Here is what was inside, with Pyg modeling for scale! First off, a pair of Brachiosaurus femora!
A Pachycephalosaurus skull!
One day when the Pachycephalosaurus skull was at the museum, Dr. Bob came in one day with a few other pachycephalosaur skulls belonging to Stygimoloch and Dracorex, and had us paint them!
You can see that all three skulls are approximately the same size: there's NO way that they are all the same animal, as some paleontologists believe!
Another great picture of the Pachycephalosaurus skull!
And the third and final awesome skull, a Camarasaurus!
The hotel has many other cool specimens, such as this Allosaurus skull, which was in the lobby!
Not only are there some FANTASTIC skulls, the hotel has some casts of fossil skeletons, as well! Here is the plan for Wadsworth the Stegosaurus, hanging above the front desk!
First, here is Good Sir Wadsworth before being brought inside!
Wadsworth being hung up!
And finally, the lobby, complete in all of its glory! Notice the Brachiosaurus femora off to the left, and the Edmontosaurus skull in the cabinet around the middle of the picture!
Here are some more great pictures from the lobby! Here are the curiosity cabinets under construction:
And the final product, with the Allosaurus skull above the fireplace!
If you travel to the dining hall, right off the lobby, you can enjoy lots of fun food, just as an enormous Tylosaurus (now named Sophie) would have done 70 million years ago! First, some pictures of Sophie!
