Welcome Homer!

Homer, a sub-adult Triceratops, was revealed at the 10th annual PaleoFest at the Burpee Museum this last weekend. "This year’s big draw was Homer, the juvenile triceratops that Burpee volunteers found in Hell Creek, Mont. — the same place where they unearthed Jane, the juvenile tyrannosaurus rex that has become the museum’s crown jewel, in 2001. Last year, only Homer’s frill and horns were on display during PaleoFest. This year, visitors were able to view his fully reconstructed skull in one of the museum’s labs." [link]

There were many good talks by Phil Currie, Matt Bonnan, Eva Koppelhus, John Foster, Peter Makovicky, Robert Reisz, Jack Horner, Josh Matthews, Scott Williams and Jim Kirkland....(there are many more).
