Getting Aquilops Ready for its Debut

Aquilops americanus is the oldest horned dinosaur ever found in North America. It was discovered in Montana with the help a University of Oklahoma paleontologist. You can read about it here and here.

It’s going to be displayed at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History in Norman. But first it needs to be prepared. I was lucky enough to get a behind the scenes look at how the tiny fossil is be made ready for display.

The plan is to have it make it’s public debut on February 4th.
