POTD: Big Mike

Big Mike Bozeman, Montana 2012

A little pictorial fooling around with a shot I took of Big Mike who stands in front of the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. Big Mike is the first life-size bronze sculpture of a T. rex in the world. It was cast from a skeleton found in eastern Montana. Interestingly, while this hunk of bronze weighs in at 10,000 pounds, that’s actually about a full ton less than what Bike Mike himself weighed when he was alive.]]>
