THÉTIS and its associates employ a full-time team who are responsible for collecting, preparing, and restoring the bones; moulding and assembling the skeletons on a stainless-steel structure as well as disassembling and reassembling the bones (fossils) for temporary or permanent exhibitions.
THÉTIS has all the necessary skills to design, build, and install your entire Paleontological Exhibition.
Eric Mickeler, co-founder of THÉTIS and dinosaur specialist, has modestly participated in the reporting of a future new species of Allosaurus (currently being described by specialists from the Royal Belgian Science Museum).
We are particularly pleased to report that one of the dinosaurs selected by THÉTIS, a rare Stegosaurus, entered a Public Collection in Northern Europe in the Autumn of 2021.

This is, of course, the rarity of its species but also its state of completeness and the time it took to remove it from the ground.
But it doesn’t stop there, because you also have to rent a mining concession, access it and sometimes build an access road, rent or acquire earthmoving machines, a buldozer, trucks, set up a camp with mobile homes and ensure the supply of water, electricity..
THÉTIS is proud to inform you that as of June 2021, we are the full owners of the domain "Las tres Casas Nuevas de Garrofet" (Catalunya, Spain), composed of 85 hectares of forests, vineyards, and the emblematic prehistoric cave of Garrofet, including the first archaeological finds present in 3 Spanish Museums (El Vendrell, Reus, Barcelona).
The importance of the site has earned 6 publications and we plan to reopen excavations, under the control of the authorities, academia, and the museums.
A new story begins, as the place will become an attraction for visitors to see the prehistoric cave and the forrest site planned for the presentation of the giants of prehistory: DINOSAURS!
