The World of Dinosaurs…

3 08 2010

Our half day camp this week is Dinomania at the ACM. Each day we learn about a different dinosaur, and today we started the week with learning about the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

This powerful predator could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite! Fossils of T. rex prey, including Triceratops and Edmontosaurus, suggest T. rex crushed and broke bones as it ate. Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever lived. Everything about this ferocious predator, from its thick, heavy skull to its 4-foot-long (1.2-meter-long) jaw, was designed for maximum bone-crushing action!

Check out our “dino” of the day!

Can you guess what bone this is?
