Recently, we shared a photo of the Barosaurus cast in the Museum’s Rotunda on Snapchat, and asked our followers there to use their artistic skills to spruce it up a little bit.

You all did not disappoint. Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite interpretations!

Actually, the Rotunda looks pretty good with some foliage…

Apologies if, like us, you are never able to see the Barosaurus as anything but a giant ballet dancer ever again.

A+ picture, but we do ask that you refrain from riding any of the dinosaurs IRL. You’d be surprised how often we have to make that clear.

And with Game of Thrones returning this weekend, how could we not share this “Barosaurus-as-dragon” interpretation?
