“RAWRRR!”

Western Wyoming Community College is home to five life sized dinosaur displays, They are the largest easily accessible collection of dinosaurs along I-80 from Chicago to San Francisco. In-order to bring Wyoming dinosaurs back to Wyoming, a fund raising project began in 1989 to collect and display specimens native to Wyoming from throughout the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods of the Mesozoic Era. The dinosaurs on display are: Camptosaurus near the bookstore which was originally found in the fossil dinosaur beds at Como Bluff, east of Rawlins Wyoming in 1879. The giant Plesiosaur which lines the hall way leading to Mitchell's Dining Hall. Stegosaurus is one of the first dinosaurs found in Wyoming in 1878 at Como Bluff east of Rawlins. Triceratops was discovered in eastern Wyoming near Lance Creek in 1889. The mighty Tyrannosaurus watches over the diners at the T-Rex Grill. All the dinosaur displays are free and open to the public whenever the college is open.
