Displayed near this panel is a set of fossils that first identified a new species, chasmosaurus irvinensis, named after the nearby Canadian town where the fossils were found.
Across from it is the type of horned dinosaur that first comes to mind for most of us: triceratops.
I think we would look like tiny ants to these dangerous creatures.ReplyDelete
Awesome exhibit, it is amazing to think of these critters roaming the earth. Happy weekend!
The horns are very dangerous!ReplyDelete
They are the animals' deadly weapon!
If I had horns, I can think of a few slimy politicians who might get impaled right away!ReplyDelete
Wonder if they can return to haunt the world!ReplyDelete

The dinosaurs have such interesting names, and somehow little children love learning to say them.ReplyDelete
They had enormous skulls and some had a huge shield over the forehead.ReplyDelete

Oh my gracious! My grandsons would be crazy happy to go to this museum. One grandson is only 5 and he can pronounce all the long dinosaur names.ReplyDelete
Magnificent animals, luckily they lived a long time ago ...ReplyDelete
I love dinosaurs....almost just as much as when I was a kit and my great-aunt brought me a selection of large polystyrene dinosaurs from the NY Museum of Natural History. Visited there with my grandfather, and was in awe of the brontosaurus skeleton. ---and I love your banner photo.ReplyDelete
