Prehistoric Museum (Price, Utah): During our
voluntary field work at the Suarez dinosaur site (excavating a new rare species), paleontologist John Bird, director of the Prehistoric Museum who headed our group, offered us a special tour to his treasures, among them this skeleton of famous Utah raptor, the scary creature known from movie "Jurassic Park".
Prehistoric Museum: Most exciting to us, John
Bird allowed us to touch actual claws of Utah
raptor - same size as in "Jurassic Park"- but here
it's real petrified dinosaur bone!
