Museum of the Rockies – Stuck in Customs

Museum of the Rockies

Montana happens to be one of the world’s hotspots for dinosaur digs. Here in Bozeman is the Museum of the Rockies, where the famous paleontologist Jack Horner serves as curator. The museum has some very nice and unique dinosaur stuff that I had never seen or heard of before.

Below is an actual T-rex skeleton that was partially uncovered then transported here to the museum.

TRex Skeleton

I remember when I was young – dinosaurs were so simple. There were only like five kinds of dinosaurs TOTAL. There was the T-Rex, the Brontosaurus, the Triceratops, the Stegosaurus, and the Pteridactal. Now when I watch any kind of dinosaur show or look at a dinosaur book, my mind has to say, okay well I guess that one is kinda like a Brontosaurus, even though it has a new name with 87 syllables.

Take for example this Torosaurus below. It’s a lot like the Triceratops, but different because some crazy scientist wanted to confuse people in their 30’s that think there are only five kinds of dinosaurs.
