fossil of the weekend #84

a double whammy of ceratopsian goodness today, brought to you by the royal tyrrell museum's 25th anniversary display "alberta unearthed".

first we have the holotype material of eotriceratops xerinsularis.

plus the beautiful reconstruction the museum made based on this material. very nice (also huge, which this photo doesn't really show off)!

Impressive as always. The lab technicians of the Tyrrell really are masters of their craft. Not many people give credit to the technicians, whose dilligence allows the mounts that visitors love to be erected.
