The Rainbow Forest Museum at Petrified Forest National Park has a new mural depicting a scene from the lower part (Blue Mesa Member) of the Chinle Formation. The mural was completed by Sedona artist Victor Leshyk (who also did the Museum of Northern Arizona's therizinosaur exhibit). The centerpiece of this new mural (at least in my eyes) is this moment when an unwary ornithodiran gets a little to close to the rivers edge and becomes a meal for the true rulers of the North American Triassic. I apologize for the poor lighting in the exhibit room (which isn't completely finished yet), but welcome everyone to check out this new scene when you visit the Park.
