Tenontosaurus extreme closeup

As mentioned previously, all will be explained soon. Incidentally, this beautiful model is of Tenontosaurus, a hypsilophodont dinosaur native to this area. In fact, trivia enthusiasts might note that a skeleton of Tenontosaurus put up in the Dallas Museum of Natural History in 1989 was the first Texas dinosaur ever put on display in a Texas museum. All others were either Texas dinosaurs in museums located elsewhere, or imported dinosaurs in our museums. This little guy (and at about 6 meters long in life, he really wasn’t all that little) is a bit of history.
