The Dickinson Museum Center recently welcomed some new guests who they hope will make a big impression this Summer.

The museum recently received two life-sized models of feathered raptor birds from Serbia.

The models will be part of an exhibit in the Summer called “Claws”.

It will show visitors how raptors used their claws in their natural environment.

The museum said people won’t see anything like them anywhere else in North Dakota.

“These new models are based on dinosaurs that did live right here in North Dakota, and we wanted to show the latest scientific idea of what they really looked like when they were alive,” said Liz Freedman-Fowler, Dickinson Museum Center.

The museum hopes to showcase the new models in May or early June.
