Win a 3D printed Dinosaur Skull! If you can identify it…

September 4, 2016

Alasaurus skulls

These 3D printed skulls were made here at HMNS, in preparation for a larger project we are planning for one of our rare specimens, which will eventually be placed in our Hall of Paleontology. The 3D prints that we will create when everything is up and running will be used to further our knowledge of Permian life from what is present day West Texas.

But until then… Let’s have some fun! The first person who can comment the correct identity of what dinosaur these skulls belong to will win their very own 3D printed copy and 4 tickets to see our Hall of Paleontology!

The winning entry will be contacted on Monday, September 5.

Adventure is my middle name. Well… actually it’s French. Literally, it’s Christopher French Wells. But the spirit of adventure lives in me, and has always inspired me to go out and seek new experiences. I’ve traveled to Europe, Mexico and South America, as well as few places in the U.S. I’ve seen different places with different cultures, learned some things about humanity and about myself in particular. My goal is to lend my unique perspective, carved out of my own triumphs and tragedies, fears and fancies encountered during my years of college and international travel, to the other great voices of this blog. Hopefully to the enjoyment of our readers…
