Jurassic CSI: Dinosaurian Life & Death

$15 HMNS members, $18 HMNS non-members.

Dr. Robert Bakker is speaking as a special lecturer for Dino Days. Get your tickets quickly as Dr. Bakker's lecture will be a hit. As you recall Dr. Bakker is coming in part through the HGS significant donation of $2,500 to the HMNS for the event. He is world renowned, so order your tickets early as this is to be a certain sell-out and space is available for only 400 people.

Dino SleuthDid dinosaurs hunt in packs? Was T. rex a ferocious predator, or merely a scavenging opportunist? Could spike-tailed stegosaurs launch deadly counter-attacks against Jurassic carnivores? And did devastating drought force herds of thunder lizards to make thousand-mile treks across the dried landscape?

Jurassic crime scene analysis can answer questions like these. Each fossilized bone or tooth is part of a crime scene. Dinosaur predators left their marks on their victims - tooth wounds on bones, broken shoulders and hips, scattering of splinters. Drought-kills and disease victims too carry evidence in the way the skeleton was buried. Forensic paleontologists excavate clues following the protocols of homicide detectives. The crime scene floor is the Jurassic soil surface where the victim was buried. Sometimes the floor reveals terrible environmental conditions and death by starvation. Sometimes the floor is the bottom of a dry-river bed that experienced a flash flood.
