As part of celebrating National Fossil Day [Oct. 12], MSU's Dunn-Seiler Museum is announcing the winning name from the recent "Name the Triceratops" competition, and "Topsy" proved to be the top favorite for the real scientific cast of a Triceratops skull found in Wyoming. Also, the museum has unveiled a new virtual exhibit, “Mississippi Fossils from the Dunn-Seiler Museum,” hosted online by MSU Libraries.
