Eugene J. Fischer, veteran osteologist of the Los Angeles County Museum staff, recently completed the preparation of a second mounted skeleton of the dire wolf for the Museum exhibit collections (see Plate 8). The skeletal elements selected in the preparation of this specimen were larger than those of average size, although the completed skeleton is not the largest that can be constructed from fossil materials available in the Pleistocene asphalt.
