“4,000 pound outdoor sculpture”

Frontier Texas is calling their newest 4,000 pound outdoor sculpture the "world's largest buffalo skull". Related City of Abilene garbage truck driver who struck, killed... Bangs plans to install new water meters Experts weigh in on the best educational toys for kids... Anthony Domol: Weather remains quiet into midweek IMPORTANT: KTXS responds to DISH Network's distorted claims The distance from one tip of the buffalo horn to the next curves a span of 26 feet. It was designed so that children could crawl inside through the eyes of the skull. "It's still a piece of art," said Jeff Salmon, Executive Director of Frontier Texas. "It's not exactly to the level of a piece of playground equipment so it's not exactly perfect for kids but we believe it is safe to climb through and climb out of. Make this a stop on your US 83 "road to nowhere" road trip. If this giant skull isn't an ominous reminder of how desolate this stretch of road is, I don't know what is.

Just so you know, this is actually in the yard of "Frontier Texas!" So if they're not open, you won't be able to get to it. We ended up going to the gift shop inside which was nice. The skull is exactly what you'd expect. It's made of painted metal and you can get inside of you want.

It was a fun stop, and right down the road from the disappointing World's Largest Paper Airplane. It's a cute photo-op and the buffalo windmill thingys are cool to look at as well. Kids can crawl around the inside too! We didn't do the tour inside the museum, but did look around the gift shop and talked to the people working (who were lovely.) Glad we stopped!

Photo op! It might not be a longhorn, but a picture posing with this roadside oddity will make for a great memento of your trip through the plains.

We came here at night so it was hard to see, but still fun as you can climb on top/through the skull. Great photo op! The street that it's on also houses a lot of other interesting looking buildings. I wish we had driven through here during the day.
