Ultimate Dinosaurs

October 10, 2014 - April 12, 2015 - All Day at Science Center of Iowa
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway

Millions of years ago, the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart, and dinosaurs became passengers on these drifting land masses. The result? Dinosaurs with unusual – and sometimes bizarre – features that are different from the ones we know and love.

Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world,Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar.  From the tiny Buitreraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex‘s bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you may not have met before.  See Ultimate Dinosaurs October 12, 2014, through April 12, 2015, at SCI!
