See new Baryonyx Walkeri skeleton on Youtube

The first Baryonyx walkeri skeleton cast built in the Western Hemisphere was first displayed at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park, Colorado, home of Triebold Paleontology, Inc. (TPI), a fossil company housed within the RMDRC facility. After only being displayed long enough to take the video, it was shipped to the Southwest Florida Museum of History in Fort Meyers, where it is now on display as part of the Darwin & Dinosaurs Exhibition. This iconic predatory dinosaur was collected and published in the 1980s by Angela Milner and Alan Charig. The original fossil material is in the collections of the Natural History Museum in London. Restored by NHM, the skeleton is built and marketed worldwide by TPI. Baryonyx means “heavy claw” due to its oversized thumb claw.  Click here to view video.
