Re: Allosaurus skeleton information



Robert (et al):

    I know that there was an apparently complete _Allosaurus_ skeleton
mounted at Princeton University's Guyot Hall (Guyot is pronounced 'ge-yo').
This is where they used to have their paleontology department.  (There is
also a Saber-tooth cat mounted next to a modern TIger specimen).  I don't
know if they moved it when they sold the majority of the department's
holdings.

    Also, there is a nice skeleton at the AMNH in New York City.  In
addition, Tom Holtz has previously told me that the _T. rex_ mount at the
Academy of Natural Sciences here in Phila. (which is cast from the AMNH _T.
rex_) uses the tail of an _Alllosaurus_ to fill in the missing parts.
