Very Old Bones

Here's another look at the dinosaur cast we left off with yesterday. 


It is face to face with this one.


Panels go into detail on specimens- in this case about edmontosaurus, a wide ranging duck-billed dinosaur.


This compares herbivore teeth, like the edmontosaurus, to the carnivore teeth of daspletosaurus.


Duck-billed dinosaurs are gathered here as specimens.


Panels examine these kinds of dinosaurs.


For today I leave off with this panel.

  1. I'm sure I knew the names of many kinds of dinosaur when I was a nine-year old but it seems they've been discarded over the years to make way for other (less-interesting) information.

  3. Always the most interesting section of a museum for the children. I wonder if it's the size of them that attracts young children.

  4. My imagination runs wild when I think about these creatures. How big were they! Have you seen the carnivorous dino's tooth ?! Wow! I don't see very well but is the carnivorous mandible on the right, right?

  11. I'm reminded that Charles Darwin actually said he couldn't understand a god who created insects like the wasps who laid their eggs in other caterpillars which they then would eat from the inside out...or that cats played with mice. I wonder what he thought of dinosaurs!

  12. When I look at dinosaurs , it's hard to think about how long ago it was and how the earth has changed.

  13. @Francisco: thanks!

    @Tom: hah!

    @Beth: only in Jurassic Park.

    @Magiceye: that's weird.

    @Barbara: from what I've seen, Darwin had very little commentary on dinosaurs, but paleontology was just getting started in his day.

    @Red: that's true.

  14. Must be a special experience to stand face to face with a dinosaur.

  15. One of our daughters was in Hawaii at Thanksgiving and took a tour where they filmed some of Jurassic Park. That is about as close as I would ever want to be near a 🦕. Guess that is one encounter I don’t have to worry about.

  20. @Susie: I certainly do.

    @Jan: even after millions of years.

    @Janey: that would interest me.

    @Cloudia: that is the case.

    @RedPat: quite different.

    @Sharon: that would have to be the Royal Tyrell Museum out in Alberta.

    @DJan: me too.
