Dinosaurs brought to life

17 07 2008

In camp this week, we traveled back in time to the land of dinosaurs to explore the lives of these ancient reptiles. We learned about the work of paleontologists and examined replica dinosaur claws. We used our imaginations to visualize the size of these creatures and how they might have moved.

The folks over at Discovery’s Dinosaur Planet have done some really neat work actually bringing our prehistoric friends to life! Animators show how dinosaurs of Mongolia and Patagonia might have looked and moved 80 million years ago. Head on over to their video gallery to see for yourself!

For a more interactive experience check out the DinoViewer to explore the size of these magnificent creatures. Learn facts and play around with 3D rotating models of each dinosaur to really get a feel for how they looked.
