A Complete Virtual Fossil a box©

All specimens are FULL sized cast replicas from molds of the original fossils. They are not reductions or sculptures. We spent the last twenty years collecting the 14 skulls used in these collections (two in the Dinosaur kit & 12 in the Dawn of Life kit).

Our line of replicas are accurate down to very fine detail. They are colored in realistuc shades... fine enough for actual scientific research. They are excellent for classroom instruction or museum exhibition. Many fossil hunters use them for field identification too. Besides scientific accuracy, we have endeavored to keep our prices as low as possible.
