Event Description

Get introduced to a variety of meat-eating dinosaurs during this educational program! What were the first dinosaurs like? When and where did other carnivorous dinosaurs live? What caused some meat-eating dinosaurs to become some of the largest predators to walk the earth, while others remained as small as a chicken? How did the raptor dinosaurs use their sickle or “killing” claw on each foot to kill their prey? What can we learn about dinosaur hunting behavior from the fossil evidence? Did some dinosaurs hunt in packs? Learn about new evidence for the predatory behavior of Tyrannosaurus rex from recently-described fused duckbill tailbones with imbedded T. rex tooth. See and touch genuine dinosaur fossils including teeth, claws, and bones!
