Saturday, June 26:
1:00pm: The Ways We Know Dinosaurs
What is the physical evidence that dinosaurs existed. Bones, teeth, and skeletons are the obvious. But what other physical evidence has been found documenting how dinosaurs may have lived.
2:00pm: The Long Necks-Sauropods
The long necks were the largest dinosaurs. With long necks and tails, a tiny head, little teeth and a gizzard (stomach) full with polished stones, this was a very interesting dinosaur group.
Sunday, June 27:
1:00pm: History of Dinosaur Hunters
Originally thought to be dragon bones, it was not until the early 1800’s that dinosaurs bones were recognized as the remains of large extinct reptiles. Color characters such as the Mantells, Richard Owen, William Buckland, Edward Drinker Cope, O.C. Marsh, and other famous dinosaur paleontologists made these fantastic dinosaur discoveries.
2:00pm: Marine and Flying Reptiles
While the dinosaurs ruled the land, non-dinosaur groups like the flying reptiles ruled the air, and marine reptiles dominated the seas. Learn about bizarre groups like the pterosaurs, ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, and mosasaurs that roamed the Mesozioc airways and seas.
