Triceratops Comes to Morden

Recently PaleoWorld Research Foundation has been welcomed to the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre (CFDC) where they will begin work preparing dinosaur material from Montana.
Last month Joseph Hatcher, curator of PaleoWorld, brought a Triceratops skull from the Garfield County Museum in Jordan, Montana to Morden, Manitoba. He has begun to expose fossil from the rock matrix in the lab.
The CFDC is hoping to have some of the Triceratops material viewed by residents in Morden before it has to return to the Garfield County Museum.
All we can see now is the occipital (bone connecting the skull to the backbones) and two horns. I'll post another blog once more is exposed.
