Légende: This is one of only seven known specimens of the Jurassic bird Archeopteryx. This example was purchased from Germany at the cost of seven figures by the Wyoming Dinosaur Center in Thermopolis, Wyoming. This is the real thing, not a cast.


Légende: Isotelus gigas is a familiar Ordovician trilobite. These specimens are from the Bromide Formation of Oklahoma. Each example is about 4 cm long. They are on display at the Burke Museum in Seattle, Washington.


Légende: This is a detail from an exhibit of Carboniferous sea life of the Bear Gulch Formation at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. This diorama depicts Echinochimaera meltoni a cartilaginous fish.


Légende: Bothryolepus was a late Devonian antiarch placoderm. This group was distinguished on the basis of its armored pectoral fins. This life-like model is on display at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center. This model is abut 50 cm long and looks exactly like the illustration in Romer's "Vertebrate Paleontology". I do not know who made the model but it is of excellent quality.


Légende: This is a large Jurassic Eurhinosaurus ichthyosaur skeleton from Holtzmadden, Germany that was donated to the University of Washington's Burke Museum by the Hart family. A staff member provides scale for this specimen.
