Invaded by Dinosaurs

Thursday, November 14, 2013

My boys are pretty crazy about dinosaurs! They love books on dinosaurs whether it's fiction and non-fiction! When there's an invitation to see these creatures, the kids were very excited! Unfortunately, Shan missed this as she was needed at the school dance practice.

For someone who do not know the difference between Triceratops to Tyrannosaurus (ok! I'm talking about myself), I'm totally in awe of the exhibition! Titans Of the Past exhibition showcases the research conducted by Museum of the Rockies Paleontologist Dr Jack Horner (Ring a bell? He's known as being the technical adviser of Jurassic Park) and his team.

We were greeted by the huge skull of a Triceratops at the entrance!

A cool collection of Triceratops specimens that showcase Triceratops at various stages of growth.

Hypacrosaurus Stebingeri

There's also interactive opportunities for kids. At this section, they learnt the sound of the dinosaur at different stages.

At this section, kids could just do some colouring!

Right after the colouring corner, they were immediately intrigued by the life size of Tyrannosaurus, better known as T-Rex.

Largest T-Rex skull ever found. Real fossil and valued at more than US$1.5 million!!!!!!!

This exhibition also features a couple of T-Rex animatronics which told the story of how the T-Rex hunt for its prey! 

Of course not all fossils are real stuff. There is a mixture of real and replica skulls, however the replica fossils on display are made of casts from the real ones. It comes pretty close to the real ones!

At the last segment of the dinosaur exhibition, it features the life-sized dinosaur skeletal casts of the Argentinosaurus - the largest Sauropod ever found - which measures a majestic 36m in length and 7m in height and a Giganotosaurus. Gosh, I thought T-Rex is the hugest dinosaur, apparently not! 

 There's also an area where you can play paleontologist uncovering fossils.

This exhibition is not all about dinosaurs. Just before the exit, Ice Age, The Exhibition” showcases animatronic mammals from the Ice Age which includes a mammoth, and a saber-toothed tiger among others. You should be familiar if you had watched the cartoon!  Be mesmerized!!!
