REASON 26 TO VISIT #ULTIMATEDINOS: NEVER BEFORE DISPLAYED IN CANADA DINOSAURS!
In my last post, I spoke about how in Canada, we’re used to a certain selection of dinosaurs, like Tyrannosaurus Barosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, etc. The special thing about Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants of Gondwana, is that we’re not showing off the old familiars (no doubt, they’re still awesome) but new, never before seen in Canada, creatures.
Growing up, I was incredibly fond of the unfamiliars, the ones I only saw in books (or later in life, the ones I only saw on Wikipedia). And I honestly thought I would never actually see these awesome fossils in real life. That all changed when I saw the floor plan for the exhbit. There was an Amargasaurus, the skull of Carcharodontosaurus, Abelisaurids Austroraptor, Ouranosaurus, SUCHOMIMUS, scattered throughout the space! I was BLOWN away.
And it’s not just me who feels this way.
I work with kids, and I spend a lot of time with our future palaeontologists. One of the greatest things I’ve ever seen, is exploring #ultimatedinos with new, them, and seeing their faces light up when they see dinosaurs they’ve only ever read about.
I think that’s one of the amazing things about this exhibit, such incredibly bizarre, and yes, ultimate, dinosaurs to experience up close FOR THE FIRST TIME!
