Earth Science's own Dr. David Elliot was recently interviewed by a local Clintonville newspaper regarding the Cryolophosaurus ellioti fossil and the efforts being taken to bring it to the Orton Museum. Cryolophosaurus ellioti is the name of the dinosaur which Dr. Elliot discovered in Antarctica in 1991 while doing unrelated field work. Now, the Orton Museum hopes to bring the whole thing home. The museum currently houses a replica of the dino's skull, but they soon hope to be able to house the entire skeleton.
