Giant Buffalo Skull

The skull must have been moved. I could find it nowhere in Medora.

[Kirsta Siems, 04/08/2018]

The skull has been "on tour" of the Great Plains for the past several years, so it will probably turn up elsewhere later in 2018.


Large Buffalo Skull

The Large Buffalo Skull is across from the Cowboy Hall of Fame. I believe that this is the same buffalo skull that had been across from the Buffalo Museum in Jamestown.

[Lisa Dewane, 05/13/2017]

You're correct. Montana artist Benji Daniels has hauled this giant skull to several locations, leaving it for a year at a time, hoping that someone will buy it. Thus far, no takers.
