Ultimate Dinosaurs

October 10, 2014 - April 12, 2015 - All Day at Science Center of Iowa
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway

Millions of years ago, the super-continent Pangaea broke apart, and dinosaurs became passengers on these drifting land masses. The result? Dinosaurs with unusual – and sometimes bizarre – features that are different from the ones we know and love.

Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world,Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar.  From the tiny Buitreraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex‘s bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you may not have met before.  See Ultimate Dinosaurs October 12, 2014, through April 12, 2015, at SCI!
