See Fantasia and Dracula! Real, full size skeletons of an Allosaurus (named Dracula) and a Stegosaurus (named Fantasia) will be on display at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary July 10-October 1.

In the spring of 2007, at the newly-investigated Dana Quarry in the Morrison Formation of Wyoming, the team from Dinosauria International LLC made an exciting discovery: the beautifully preserved femur of the giant carnivorous Allosaur. As they kept digging, their excitement grew greater; next came toe bones, leg bones, ribs, vertebrae and finally a skull: complete, undistorted and, remarkably, with full dentition. It was an incredible find; one of the most classic dinosaurs, virtually complete, articulated and in beautiful condition. But that was not all. When the team got the field jackets back to the preparation lab, they discovered another leg bone beneath the Allosaurus skull... There was another dinosaur in the 150 million year-old rock. After more digging and more bones, they realize the enormity of their discovery; the Allosaurus apparently died in the midst of mortal combat with another iconic Jurassic dinosaur; the Stegosaurus. . .

The dinosaurs are on loan from Heritage Auction Galleries.
