Ankylosaur Flying! [1.21.11]

As blogger Brian Switek (@laelaps) pointed out on Twitter, ankylosaurs aren't exactly aerodynamic.


The HMNS ankylosaur - an original created for the 1964 World's Fair - has been a much loved part of our paleontology hall for decades. It was deinstalled today as part of the construction associated with our ongoing expansion, and will be stored until it re-emerges in our new Paleontology Hall in 2012!
