David Thomas Albertosaurus




Limited-edition bronze Albertosaurus made during the 1980s by David Thomas for sale at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The figure is a miniature version of Dave’s actual-sized bronze Albertosaurus (nicknamed “Alberta”)  statue made to stand — facing off “Spike,” Dave’s Pentaceratops — outside the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, Albuquerque.
