...THEY'RE BOTH REPLICAS. Many of the skulls and skeletons on display in world-famous museums are replica fossils. Museums, schools and private collectors have found that casts of original fossils have many advantages for exhibit, education, and research. Durable, lightweight, and scientifically accurate, replica fossils are now available to the general public as well.

Own a Tyrannosaurus Skull Today!
Most of us will never own a real Archaeopteryx, a real Tyrannosaurus tooth, Velociraptor skull, or real Saber-Toothed Cat skull. We will only enjoy such fossil treasures in books or museums.

But now you can own the next best thing, a Prehistoric Planet replica fossil. With replicas you can enhance your private fossil collection while learning from the direct handling and examination of your own Archaeopteryx, T. rex, or Velociraptor reproduction fossil.


Over Two Hundred Affordable Specimens
Most our individually hand-crafted replicas are made from rare and intriguing fossil originals using a process which duplicates every detail with a specialized durable molding mixture. This material is dried, tinted or painted, then detailed to a very natural appearance. The result is a nearly exact copy of the original fossil. In fact, many of our replicas are on display right now in museums around the world!

I'd like to thank Ray Garton for donating the megalonyx claw to the new Griffin Discovery Room at Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. It's a hands-on center for children. The claw is a great addition and will further enrich the chidren's experience as they learn about Thomas Jefferson's interests in paleontology. Thank you again!
