Triceratops Attack

    Newer Older

    The triceratops definitely falls into one of those "Top 5" dinosaurs of my youth. Now there are so many, I hardly know where to begin. I go through my son's dinosaur books and I am shocked at how many different names there are. I can't keep track of all that. Plus, the names are kinda rough. Each one seems to have over seven syllables.

    This was shot at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. It's one of the top dinosaur museums in the world and the curator is Jack Horner. I was lucky enough to get a personal tour through it with Jack... he showed me all kinda of secret stuff throughout. Awesome! I have another friend up there named Dr. David Sands who actually found one of the triceratops that is in the museum. I can't imagine finding something that big... If I did, I think I'd tell everyone I know the first time I met them. Hi, I'm Trey, I found a Triceratops!

    I also made a new page here on the site in tribute of my favorite photographer, Edward Curtis. I mentioned him in a recent interview and it occurred to me people may not know who he is! So, I put together a grouping of some of my favorite photos of his. Be sure you read the bit about his ex-wife.

      Now I'm wishing that I'd had more time when I was blowing through Bozeman a few years back. Great shot!

      I Love this shot!!! It reminds me of when Jurassic Park (the movie) came out and it made me want to get into Paleontology.

      Yes POOJAY - Jack Horner was actually the model paleontologist upon which Alan Grant was based.

      Great shot. Certainly if I found a Triceratops the first thing I would do is post my photo on Flickr :-)

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Cool pic, great textures and colours.

      I have to say Trey it looks more like a triceratops 'friendly nuzzle' although I realise that doesn't make for such exciting copy :-)

      Also, you had a dinosaur top 5?!

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Makes My Bones Sing ~P1 C3~, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      When my mind finally registered the perspective and just what my eyes were seeing here, I laughed out loud! Cool!
