Dinosaur Show – Field Paleontologists Mike and Roberta Straka will take you on a scientific exploration highlighting the world of dinosaurs, fossils and rocks/minerals. Each summer, the team explores the Badlands of North and South Dakota excavating dinosaurs. This fun-filled wow-factor show will cover the formation of fossils and herbivores vs. carnivores. We will discuss our work as field paleontologist and our background in geology in a relatable way with entertainment, humor, magic and real fossils. The presentation will feature:
- “Mr. Nixon”, a real eight foot Triceratops skull discovered by our team in 1996 and is 67 million years old
- A real Albertosaurus skull will highlight the features of a carnivore.
- Original music
- Show & tell with rare fossils
- A touch of magic which includes a special “egg magic trick” which segues to *presentation of a real dinosaur egg fossil
- “Dinosaur Game Show” will round out the show.
