Founded in 1960 by Lin Ottinger, the Moab Rock Shop has been family owned and operated for over 50 years!! Lin's knowledge of rocks, minerals, & fossils, along with his discoveries, has earned him the title of The Dinosaur Man.  Many of his discoveries have been donated to museums & universities, including BYU in Provo, UT.  


At least FOUR species of dinosaurs were found by him - including Saurapods (Apatosaurus / Brachiosaurus), Euoplocephalus, Utahraptor, and Iguanodon Ottingeri.  Since this was the first Iguanodon found in the US, it is named after shop owner, Lin Ottinger.  


Replicas of many of his findings/donations can be seen in our shop!
