In 1999, Dr. Bobby Deaton of Texas Wesleyan found and excavated a Triceratops prorsus skull from the Hell Creek Formation in North Dakota. At more than seven feet long and with all three original horns intact, Rally’s #DEATON was preserved in plaster field jackets for more than a decade following its uncovering.

Father-son geologists Luis and Walter Alvarez, along with nuclear chemists Frank Asaro and Helen Michel, publish a paper in Science Magazine theorizing that the C-T mass extinction event was caused by an impact from an asteroid the size of San Francisco over 65 million years ago.

Rally enters into an agreement to acquire #DEATON and offer it on the Rally platform.
The recovered skull elements of the #DEATON are of excellent quality overall, exhibiting nice detail, solid outer surfaces, and a natural dark brown patina common on fossils recovered from the iron-rich geological formation at Hell Creek. #DEATON is now mounted on a stand for display, and has undergone osteographs which map its original bone content, showing that the skull retains 50% of its original bone count and 65% of its original bone mass.Invest Now
