Oh, what big teeth you have. A tyrannosaurus rex skull shows just what the now-extinct dinosaur’s prey faced millions of years ago. The fossil was one of about 150 displayed at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista Drive in Marble Fall on Sept. 10-11 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. ‘Dinosaur George’ Blasing created the exhibit, which he calls Museum in the Classroom. Blasing takes the exhibits to communities across Texas where children and adults might not otherwise get the opportunity to see such displays.

Never turn your back on a dinosaur. Fortunately for ‘Dinosaur George’ Blasing, this allosaurus isn’t quite the four-ton carnivorous dinosaur it once was.
