Eventually, you plan to have dinosaurs in your dinosaur tour, right?

Don't listen to these other posts. My only knowledge of dinosaurs comes from the movies Jurassic Park 2 to 3. Well, I fell asleep during the second movie, so I guess really only the third. OMG! I seriously need this more than any of the other posts. If I don't get this, I will never broaden by dinosaur knowledge base. Imagine, a mind molded solely by Jurassic Park 3. Try to not give me that book with that on your conscience.

Recently visited the National Dinosaur Museum while in Canberra, Australia. Interesting little place. They presented some good information on the geologic history of Australia and Canberra, specifically, with their exhibits. That, and they have several large fiberglass dinosaurs on their lawn....

Thanks to Jurassic Park and Dinotopia, my interest in our beloved prehistoric reptiles has been restored! I love the fact that science is now taking a step in how these creatures are portrayed in popular media. Oh, and I've watched my share of dinosaur doozies.

Brontosaurus was my pick for a second grade project back in the dark ages. I molded him from clay using a picture from a dinosaur book I owned (I probably still have), the picture itself was from Zallinger's "The Age of Reptiles" mural. Awesome mural... This sure brings back memories...
