A 2,400-pound, 24-foot-long bronze skeleton of an Edmontosaurus annectens—a hadrosaur, or duck-billed dinosaur—was installed on October 25 outside the entrance of the McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture as part of its fiftieth anniversary celebration.

Its selection is fitting because the hadrosaur once roamed the coastal plains of Tennessee. The McClung Museum also houses actual hadrosaur bones—the only nonavian dinosaur bones ever found in the state—in its Geology and Fossil History of Tennessee permanent exhibit.

“The dinosaur will be both an educational centerpiece and a symbol of the immense time depth of life on this planet,” said McClung Museum Director Jefferson Chapman.
