Yes, it seems that overnight, the small-headed spiky-'saur was given a fashionable makeover—complete with rainbow leggings, an eye patch, scrunchies, bracelets, and a tail pom-pom! According to note left at the scene, the adorable accessories were knit by someone called "Jenn."

All in good fun, the museum's staff have decided to leave the exhibition as is until this Sunday, September 22nd—so if you're in town, definitely check out Steggy's new look! We think it's totally adorable!

I love yarn.  I make blankets and donate them to the Red Cross.  Yarn is so comforting.  I bet those animals wished they really had yarn blankets when the ice age moved through!

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool.
