“Life finds a way!”

Large statue of a dinosaur located in Laramie, Wyoming at the University. Stop by, snap a photo, and check out the little museum next to the statue... Ask a student if you need help finding it!

The metal dinosaur is located in front of the Geology dept. The campus is beautiful and we asked the first student we saw how to get to the dinosaur.

Located on the University of Wyoming campus. When we visited a passerby told us rumor has it that if a student throws a pinecone into the dinosaur's mouth, they'll get all A's on their final exams.

It was a welcome break from driving to get out and walk around the beautiful campus and run into this fella.

The original location marked is off. Go to the geological survey building and you will find him.

Good place to get out and take a walk through campus - but probably not worth it if you are short on time.

Located in the middle of campus by the geology building, what a fun museum (a surprise) and great dinosaur exhibit. A pretty walk across campus. Fun for all ages (some heads on activities in the museum for kids). Free.

We loved stopping here! Kids loved seeing the dinosaur. We went in the museum too. Great place. Not too long to go through, and was still very interesting for both adults and children.
