Mastodon, dinosaurs upstate
The New York State Museum in Albany, visited this weekend, has a pretty impressive mastodon that was dug up in 1866 near the Cohoes Falls (pictured here). It's the skeleton of a juvenile, not fully grown. The Museum has an interesting collection, focused on state animals and history.
Also of note for paleontology enthusiasts in or passing through the Capital Region, the Museum of Innovation and Science in Schenecteday has (until Sept. 29) various animatronic dinosaurs, including those in the graphic scene below.
