"Cool New Stuff about Dead Old Dinosaurs"
Monday, 12th June 2006: 2:30 - 4.00 pm
Annex Auditorium, Singapoe Science Centre

By Jack Horner,

Regents Professor of Paleontology and Curator of Paleontology,
Museum of the Rockies, Montana, USA

Admission details - How to get there

Maiasaurus means "Good mother lizard" and Jack Horner should know - he discovered a nesting colony of these dinosaurs, proving that some dinosaurs were social animals and cared for their young. This discovery established his career.

In this talk, Jack will talk about cool new stuff about dinosaurs we've come to know. Jack and his team are trying to unravel as much as possible in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, USA. This rich fossil deposit appaers to have been a savannah of hunters and hunted. He will also discuss why he thinks "the King" - T. rex - was a mere scavenger and not a hunter.

But then, maybe that's not so cool.
