The Oertijdmuseum in Boxtel reconstructed the last carnivorous dinosaur in the Netherlands using no more than one single femur bone. At 3 meters long, the Betasuchus bredai is a lot smaller than its American relative, the T-Rex. “What makes him special to us is that he actually lived here in this area,” says museum director Fraaije.
The Oertijdmuseum, in collaboration with Creatures & Features, has started their largest project ever. A Diplodocus skeleton of about 20 meters has to be prepared and set up. This with the help of the found skeletons known as “Brösmeli”, “Twin”, and “Triplo”, which were found in the years 1990-1996 in Wyoming, USA.
