Long Description:
Andrew Carnegie sent a group of paleontologists to Wyoming in 1898 to retrieve the bones of “the most colossal animal on earth,” bringing international recognition to Pittsburgh and American paleontology. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Dippy went from bones to a fleshed-out model. Using information from the paleontologists at the museum, a fiberglass shell was made over a steel armature creating this life-size replica of an animal that became extinct 150 million years ago.

Title: Diplodocuscarnegii, aka "Dippy"
Research Casting International, 1999
