Ceasar the Allosaurus

SHERIDAN — Installation of Caesar the Allosaurus began Monday at Sheridan College.

The 12-foot, six-inch mounted replica is based on molds made of the original Caesar found in a dinosaur quarry near Buffalo in the 1990s.

The mount will be placed on the second floor of the Edward A. Whitney Academic Center. The completed project will be unveiled during the Sheridan College VIP dinner on Sept. 28 and a public open house Monday, Sept. 30 to Friday, Oct. 4.

Forty percent of the skeletal remains have been found and creation of the replica is a $150,000 project. First Federal Savings Bank made the first contribution to the project. The S. K. Johnston Family Fund, the Nickerson Family Foundation, and the David B. Jones Foundation also made significant contributions to the project.
