Customers Jason and his son Connor shared these photos from their trip 2 years ago to

 Drumheller &

the Royal Tyrrell Museum(west of Drumheller)

Connor loves all sorts of crazy things (like his dad), Dinosaurs and Sharks being his favorite. The big T-Rex below is in the town of Drumheller (Canada), the one with the Connor in the mouth is a shot taken from inside that same T-Rex.  We've gone a few times over the years.  We just came back from a trip to Alberta and Saskatchewan, and stopped off in Drumheller (again) and in Regina to check out some of the museums.

The photos below are taken at the Royal Tyrrell Museum just west of Drumheller, of father Jason (play-acting quite well!) hanging off the Allosaurus:

Above is our great Fossil Identification showcase we had our store (now we're just online).  Some are unusual fossils, others are more common fossils found right here on our own Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas.  Folks came from near and far with their fossils to find out what they were.  We have reference books to back up the display as well, we were delighted to see what everyone  found.  Now on our Fossil pages we hope you are able to identify odd fossils and learn more in a fun way.

 These minerals are the reason for a particular color that occurs in petrified wood!

A short trip from Holbrook AZ we started to come upon these dinosaurs!  (They're spin-off's from Adam's work, see below) so we took the two mile driving tour of the park.  Look out, Glenn, "history" is about to set its teeth in you!  No, it's not a movie set - it's the hard work of one man and his heavy machinery, that placed these dinosaurs and arranged the petrified logs for us to enjoy.  His property is cut through the middle by the State Park - Petrified Forest.  He informed us that the petrified logs exist up to 215 feet UNDERGROUND on his property.  The inventory was staggering.  The last picture is a lovely cactus that has taken root within nutrients in the cracks of the petrified log.  What an incredible history tour we had this day!

In Holbrook, Arizona we came upon these awesome dinosaurs!  Each made lovingly by Adam Luna, the owner of the Rainbow Rock Shop.  Look at the inventory of petrified wood he uses for cutting and selling!  A deeply religious man, the petrified rock shop has been the handiwork of his lifetime.  We saw (and purchased) some of the loveliest petrified wood from him, as well as numerous limb casts.  Thank you for the honor of meeting you, Adam!

And here's two wonderful additions that adorned our own store front - we had two dinosaurs made and delivered August 2002 - the building process is photographed on our "About Us" pages - here's the finished babies:

Then there's the "Terror of the South" at the Raleigh NC Museum of Natural Sciences.  "Acrocanthosaurus Atokensis" (means "high spined lizard) or ACRO for short. Here's a replica on display at the Aurora Fossil show.  There have been only 4 specimens found in the world, the original of this is the most complete of the four.
