Building a Dinosaur Exhibit
Picture 1: Looking at the DrawingsBefore skeletal mounts are built, drawings are created to plan the work.

Here, the crew is deciding how to shape the metal supports for T. rex by looking at the life-sized drawing of its tail bones.

Next, the metal supports for the bones are created.

Here's one of the crew members welding and bending the metal supports for T. rex's spine.

Picture 2: Creating the Metal Supports
Picture 3: Installing the Metal SupportsAfter the metal supports are shaped, all of the bones are added.

In this picture, the toes of Apatosaurus are about to be placed into the metal supports one by one.
