Incredible - those teeth look amazing
Larry Bliss: I understand the pterodactyls brushed regularly... smile
With a name like Pterodactyl this creature had it made, good job it did not have a silly name smile It looks like a great model.
Larry Bliss: It's very impressive "in person".
Unusual catch. One can imagine all kinds of things here...
Larry Bliss: The museum has several restored dinosaurs... very popular with the kids (and young at heart adults smile )
