Pteranodon Fossil

Pteranodon Fossil STEM Archeological Wonders

It takes a great deal of painstaking work to clean fossilized remains so they can be seen in museums (and other such places). 

Mike Everhart tells us where he and his wife, Pam, found the skull of a young male Pteranodon - in an area of Smoky Hill Chalk (in the U.S. state of Kansas) - and what he had to do to prepare it immediately thereafter.

The Everharts donated their Pteranodon specimen to the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and Science where it is identified as CMC VP 7203.
