Fossil collection excites youngsters of all ages

One of the most popular exhibits in the museum is the Fossil Corner.

Dominated by a life-sized casting of a T-rex head, the fossil corner also displays a mastodon thigh bone, tusk and tooth, a skeleton of a hoplophoneus (one of the first sabertooth cat), and a smilodon (the last sabertooth cat). These replicas were cast from actual specimens from other museum collections.

The newest addition to the collection is the actual leg bone of a wooly mammoth. The specimen stands 6 feet, 7 inches tall.
