"Cimmy", the Apatasaurus


category : Arts
Bones of prehistoric dinosaurs were discovered in 1931 about eight miles east of Kenton which included an almost complete skeleton of an apatasaurus, thought to be the largest specimen of its kind in existence.

"Cimmy" is a sculptured iron replica of the apatasaurus dinosaur that was excavated in Cimarron County. Cimmy which is 65 feet long, 35 feet high, and weighs 18,000 pounds, stands at the entrance to the Cimarron Heritage Center Museum as an invitation to the Paleontology Exhibit inside.

The life-size dinosaur was sculptured by Joe Barrington of Throckmorton, Texas.
