    We went to see the exhibit of Chinese fossils at OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) this last weekend, and I thought I'd share some photos. along with the fossils, they had some animatronic versions.

    No, not a T-rex but a Tarbosaurus:

    Cool. Hmmmm, we haven't been to OMSI for quite a long time.

    You know, they have a T-rex head downtown in DC. Its nothing as big as Jurassic Park, what jip off! I want a mega T-rex with a head the size of a Jeep!

    Actually, I was surprised how small they are. However, its really cool thing to see though. You have to use your imagination and try to picture them with skin though.

    Janus, your in Oregon too? I love OMSI, especially the labs they have, like the chemistry one. My little (turns 8 this year, so not so little any more) cousin is addicted. My aunt and uncle have to take him like once a month (they're only in Battleground, WA so...yeah)

    Cool creatures. Wonder how many are still laying somewhere.

    Well, I'm from the dinosaur capital of the known universe (southern Alberta), but I must admit that you have a mighty impressive display there.
