PEBBLE PUPS:


Although most of us are familiar to the most famous dinosaur of all, Tyrannosaurus rex, there has not been much known of their evolution or origins in the Mesozoic. Well, paleontologists have begun to fill in their family tree and find the T. rex was not the "king" of the predators, but a long line of fur and feathered carnivores that threatened the herbivores for most of the age of dinosaurs. We will see some of these new "missing links" and see how successful they actually were. Also don't forget to bring a specimen or two for our "show and tell" session beforehand..
