Come visit Henry the Triceratops!
In 2013, a group of researchers from MINS discovered Henry, a triceratops skeleton, in Weston county Wyoming. This amazing find now resides at the institute, where ongoing preservation and restoration work continues. Once the preservation work is complete, Henry will become a centerpiece exhibit at the museum.
Henry is approximately 40% complete. He is estimated to be 30% larger than any previous triceratops specimen discovered to date. Check out the diagram below to see what bones have been identified so far.
