A Utah-restored Allosaur is on its way to the famous Creation Museum.
The 30-foot-long, 10-foot-tall Allosaur skeleton will be unveiled Saturday at the museum near Cincinnati, Ohio, known for its Creationism theme.
This Allosaur, named Ebenezer, is "exceptional not only for its almost-complete three-foot-long skull (including 53 teeth) but because its bones, rather than mixed and scattered, were found together (with many in their articulated position)," according to an announcement of the exhibit.
Ebenezer was restored in Utah, according to the announcement, where Allosaurus is the state fossil. The carnivore’s name means "different lizard" or "strange reptile," and a Utah government website describes them as "too bulky" to catch fast prey, so luckily for them, stegosaurs were slow, too.
Coincidentally, the museum’s announcement comes the same day as the 215th anniversary of British paleontologist Mary Anning’s birthday — as anyone who visited the Google homepage today found out.
