Dig Baton Rouge

Louisiana Art and Science Museum has a new resident

If you haven’t been to Louisiana Art and Science Museum in awhile, you may notice a new face when you walk through the building–or a new skull.

The museum recently gained a 66 million-year-old Triceratops skull, The Advocate reports. The skull’s name is Jason, and he came to Baton Rouge from Tucson, Arizona.

“This is one of the most complete triceratops skulls ever found,” said paleontologist Thomas Lindgren, co-consulting director of the Natural History Department at Bonhams auction house in Los Angeles, according to The Advocate. Lindgren traveled with Jason to Baton Rouge.
