UPPER AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP, NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Some scouts in Northumberland County should’ve earned a dinosaur badge Tuesday night.
They had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to touch a 68 million-year-old Triceratops skull.
Barry and April James own a company near Sunbury called Prehistoric Journeys, and over the past three decades, the couple has put together more than 150 skeletons — piece by piece.
Their latest masterpiece came from Montana. It was sitting in storage for the past 15 years until they took on the jigsaw puzzle from the Cretaceous Period.
But before the skull ships out to the client who bought it, these scientists decided to share the Triceratops with their community.
“I was pretty surprised,” said Ethan Smith with Boy Scout Troop 333. “It feels different than I thought it would. I thought it would crumble to dust when I touched it.”
Prehistoric Journeys also completed a 41-foot T-Rex named Tristan, which is on display right now in Berlin, Germany.
