twilight of the triceratops

During our spring break trip to Rochester, we were able to catch the last day of a special exhibit at Quarry Hill featuring a replica of Kelsey, the most complete Triceratops skeleton found to date. At 22 feet long and 8 feet tall, this dinosaur was very impressive. Other fossils and replicas such as Psittacosaurus, Velociraptor and Pachycephalosaurus were featured in the same room. We also spent some time exploring the permanent exhibits of the nature center, including the aquariums containing fish and turtles, the hands-on tables with bones and pelts, and the pond.
