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!

Best way to advertise for future graffiti, vandalism, and thefts.  Good job.

You left out the most important part of the story, broadcast on our local radio stations (I live near Cranbrook), which  was the artist's explanation of "why Steggy" - Because he inspired her to study science in college!

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
