Dinosaurs in the flesh are in Rome!

Dinosaurs in the flesh are in Rome!

At the Museum of Paleontolog, Department of Earth Sciences of Rome, from 27 December 2014 until 31 May 2015, the exhibition “Dinosaurs in the flesh“, revives the Prehistory, thanks to more than 40 realistic and life-size replicas of dinosaurs and other extinct animals.
Walking on campus, you can see between the buildings, the heads and legs of these great giants of the past, among which, the Tyrannosaurus or the dreaded Spinosaurus, made by referring to the new and very recent scientific discoveries, and you will observe one of the few sample in the world of Trachycarpus takil.

The exhibition was made possible by a italian staff, which used prehistoric models, through panels and backdrops by painted paleoartists.

In the station, “How do you build a dinosaur“, visitors can follow the creative process which allowed to reconstruct in detail huge animals like Allosaurus, Spinosaurus, Diplodocus, and Tyrannosaurus Indricoterio; in the rooms dedicated to the ice age there are examples of more recent history as the Mammut or Megacero Cervo, only to discover little-known dinosaurs as Dracorex or Ornitholestes

The exhibition features guided tours made by the paleontologists, from day-event, from creative workshops and conferences on various topics.
