Project Description

“Jim Bob” is an Allosaurus, a meat-eating predator from 150 million years ago in the late Jurassic. He is nicknamed in honor of Dr. Robert Bakker and Jim Madsen, two famous paleontologists who studied Allosaurus extensively. The name bearing specimen of this species was first found in Cañon City, Colorado, and now resides at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.
