Keep Bob Close To His Home

Many people are in agreement that we should try everything possible to keep this fantastic find here. Unfortunately, Bob may be going overseas and could possibly end up in a private collection. This is most likely the largest triceratops skeleton ever found and one of the most complete. It was found on private land here in North Dakota, and all the labor for its restoration and assembly was provided by North Dakotans.


Another rare thing about Bob is that he will not be duplicated. This is one of a kind and will not have dozens of replicas. The best way to keep this priceless artifact in North Dakota is finding a donor to spearhead this project and put down a deposit while the rest of the funds can be obtained. Our desire is to keep Bob as local as possible for research, study, and enjoyment for generations to come.


Wes Anderson, from the Barnes County Museum, and I would be glad to answer any questions regarding how you might be able to help or make a contribution to the cause to "Keep Bob."
