Tuesday, August 23

Mostly touch-up and spot cleaning. New photos start here.

Why do they need to be touched up? Aren't these real dinosaurs? Well, the bones behind glass in the exhibit cases are real, but most of the ones that are out in the open are actually cast replicas of the real thing. The Project Exploration website has a great page that explains how they make the casts.
