The Titans Of An Ancient Era

Spending time among fossils seems to appeal to many, from children to adults. Such is the case with me.

A display stands beneath the cast replica of another predator, carnotasaurus.

I mentioned earlier in this series that it wasn't just bones that got fossilized.

I also mentioned the connection of dinosaurs and birds. Some of that is explored here, with panels and specimens. Tomorrow we bring this series (which lasted a lot longer than I expected when I started it) to a close.


  1. I adore dinosaures ! how interesting they all are ! I like the Ostriches so crazy are they.
    So enjoying this walk through the Museums.
    Hope you are doing OK
    cheers. parsnip

  2. ...dinosaurs sure are a diverse group, I find it difficult to understand people who believe that evolution is a hoax.

  3. Hello, I love the dinosaurs, what a great exhibit. Wishing you a happy day!

  4. I would have liked to have been an archeologist!

  5. The fossils always seem to be the most popular section in a museum. I've enjoyed this series, William.

  6. Fascinating animals, but I'm glad they don't live anymore...
    This is a great series, William !

  7. The color of dinosaur plumage, I imagine, was spectacular. Nice line up of photos

  8. We are lucky that these creatures don't exist today.

  9. @Parsnip: I'm fine, aside from being tired of the restrictions. It's impossible for me to keep up with blog reading right now.

    @Tom: I don't get that either.

    @Eileen: thank you!

    @Jennifer: I would too.

    @RedPat: thanks!

    @Karl: thank you.

    @Maywyn: it would have been.

    @Bill: we wouldn't exist as we do.

  10. Great fossil display and photos ~

  11. Those carnivores must have been quite vicious.

  12. I'm reading a book now ("Spying on the South" by Tony Horwitz) where the author visits a "creationist" museum (in Tennessee or possibly Kentucky) that includes a rendering of Adam and Eve with dinosaurs in the background. Carbon dating just isn't part of the world view.

    1. I've heard of that place. An insult to progress.
