Dinosaur Bones at the BYU Museum of Paleontology

As I mentioned in a previous post, I visited several museums on BYU's campus last July. One of the museums my family members and I visited was the BYU Museum of Paleontology.

The museum is open Monday through Friday, 9 AM - 5 PM. Admission is free.

Here are some pictures from our visit.

Unfortunately, I don't know the names of the dinosaurs in the photos above and below.

But I do know the name of this dinosaur with the very large teeth. It's a Torvosaurus tanneri.

And this dinosaur in the photo below is a Gastonia burgei.

The very large dinosaur with the long neck and tail in the photo below actually doesn't have a name yet. The informational plaque said "Not yet named."

The dinosaur on the right in the photo below is a Monoclonius crassus and the one on the left is a Triceratops horridus.

This is one big seashell! It's called an Ammonoid.

This is a Megatherium americanum, also known as a giant ground sloth. 

Here's the informational plaque about the giant ground sloth.

Near the entrance of the museum is this poster about James A. Jensen, also known as "Dinosaur Jim."

Below the poster is this plaque about him.

I'll share more photos from my visit to another BYU museum in a future post.

Thanks for stopping by!
