  Triceratops horridus RAYMOND Children's "Dig" - Fossil Replica  (BHI #126948)
Triceratops horridus RAYMOND Children's "Dig" - Fossil Replica 
Detailed Images

This articulated skeleton, called 'RAYMOND' (after a local rancher), is one of the best preserved skeletons that has been found to date. The specimen laid on its right side after death, and was buried. The left side was later exposed during the Pleistocene, and destroyed by weathering. It was buried again by nature, and only recently re-exposed by erosion. Nearly the entire right side was collected intact.

As such, RAYMOND's replica makes a near perfect 'dig' to give children the opportunity to practice their paleontology skills! We divide the skeleton into sections that easily slide together in the bottom of your 'dig-site'. We then build up material under the 'bones' to provide support, and to make an impenetrable barrier so kids can't dig under the 'bones' and damage them. We make this look just like matrix - the dirt or rock that would naturally encase the bones in a real paleo dig.

You make the dig pit, install the RAYMOND dig replica, then cover it with artificial matrix (ask us for ideas about what to use) and turn the kids loose!
