8.11.2014 NEW CONJOINED CALF!
Osteosaur's newest skeleton articulation is a conjoined calf! This animal had two heads, two tails, six legs, but only one pelvis! Although rare, conjoined twins have been known to occur in a number of vertebrate species.
Check out more photos of this/these calves on our Skeletons Archive page.
This skeleton was articulated for The Evolution Store in New York City. For questions about purchasing and prices please contact: http://theevolutionstore.com/contact-us
3.25.2014 NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
This March, Osteosaur was mentioned in a National Geographic online article! A giant oviraptor dinosaur (Anzu wyliei) was recently named, and Todd Green (Osteosaur owner) was interviewed by writer Peter Miller to discuss similarities between oviraptors and modern ratites (emus, cassowaries, ostriches, rheas, & kiwis). Green also elaborates on his research with ratite birds, and his "emu wrangling" experiences. This 11-foot long, North American dinosaur has been playfully referred to by researchers as "The Chicken from Hell" because of its bird-like skeleton.
