Here’s a short video showing just how long the tail of the Carnegie Apatosaurus is. It just keeps going and going and going…
Each year the SVP hosts a benefit auction to support society activities. And each year the auction committee has a fun theme that they dress up to – previous years have included Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, James Bond, and Monty Python.
