Dinosaurs in Halmstad

Standard

Skyman, Nicklas, and I went to Halmstad a few weeks ago to look at a dinosaur exhibit, focusing on Russian species. Here are pictures of almost all species displayed, including quite a few that were not dinosaurs. All taxonomy follows that of the exhibition, classification for non-dinosaurs taken from the internet.
