See-Through Dinosaur Skull

See-through Dinosaur Skull
See-Through Dinosaur Skull project featuring the baby Triceratops specimen at UCMP

By combining high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scanning and 3D printing, we now have an opportunity to bring to life for the first time the inner workings of the interior of the smallest and youngest Triceratops yet known from the UCMP collections. This 3D printed "see-through" skull, which we intend to put on display with the current Triceratops growth series in the Marian Koshland Bioscience and Natural Resources Library of the Valley Life Sciences Building, will be the first "see-through" dinosaur skull anywhere! Please support UCMP and the See Through Dinosaur Skull project thorugh the UC Berkeley Crowdfunding Intiative. Thank you!
