Original fossil specimens for museums and collectors.
We’ve been providing our customers with vertebrate fossil skeletons, fossil teeth, and more since 1989. Let us help you update your existing exhibits or create a new one to suit your needs. Our experienced team is prepared to work with you on your project from start to finish.
WHO WE ARE
Dinosaur Sanctuary is the original fossil division of Triebold Paleontology, Inc., which has been supplying the world's museums with fossils and casts since 1989. TPI employs a full-time staff engaged in the collection, preparation, restoration, molding, casting, mounting, and remounting of fossil skeletons. We can design, build, and install your entire paleontological exhibition.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our specimens are collected with the academic buyer in mind and all of the documentation you would expect from an academic dig and more are provided to the buyer. Clear title to each specimen is also guaranteed. Our policy has always been that any fossil vertebrate considered scientifically significant is reserved for acquisition by a public institution as part of a permanent collection.
"I was particularly pleased with TPI's capability and willingness to mount the skeleton exactly in the way we wanted, and it is not easy to do when you are dealing with a 15 meter (45 foot) skeleton. I was impressed with their highly professional operations."
Dr. Makoto Manabe

"Mr. Triebold stands above his competitors in that he is both very well qualified and his integrity may be depended upon without reserve."

"Scientific accuracy is TPI's hallmark. If TPI has bid on preparation and mounting of your specimens, you can be sure the work will be done carefully, will be done well, and will be on time and on budget."
