The Allosaurus Crate includes casts of its hand claw, one of the most impressive weapons to adorn a dinosaur with a curvature over 8 1/2", a stout foot claw, and a tooth with the root still attached.
Allosaurus fragilis, the "fragile different lizard" was so named because the paleontologist that named it thought its hollowed-out backbones, something he hadn't seen before, made the animal weak. This savage Jurassic giant couldn't have been further from the descriptor of fragile! Allosaurus is a spectacular Jurassic predator, averaging 28' long with some individuals reaching nearly 40' and weighing over 3 tons! Numerous Allosaurus fossils show evidence of bone infections and breaks, indicating the savage life they led.
