Horns, spikes, quills and feathers... the secrets in the skin!

Gondwana Studios is bringing an exciting and new travelling exhibition to the LibraryMuseum from Saturday 18 March - Sunday 21 May 2017.

Dinosaurs lived all over the world for 169 million years and vanished 65 million years ago when Earth was struck by an asteroid. Until recently, our knowledge of dinosaurs was fairly limited, assuming their skins were lizard-like and mostly grey, green and brown.

We're breaking the mould with Dinosaur rEvolution!

Thanks to new fossils found in China that show preserved dinosaur skin and soft tissue, we can now get a true glimpse of the bizarre and complex nature of the evolution of the Dinosauria.

The 'secrets of the skin' have revealed a clash of evolutionary strategies (feathers, scales, claws and sharp teeth, versus beaks, quills, scales, spikes, horns and body armour) in which only the smallest, flying dinosaurs would survive extinction.

This exhibition follows the separate paths of the two main groups - Saurischia and Ornithischia - as one goes on to extinction, and the other flies into another age.

Dinosaur rEvolution will appeal to families, dinosaur enthusiasts and educational groups. On display are dinosaur skeletons, cast fossils and artworks illustrating dinosaurs in all their living, breathing colours.

Exhibition tickets are available from the LibraryMuseum: Children - $2, Adults - $5 and Family - $10 (2 adults and up to 3 children).

Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets to Survival is a travelling exhibition produced by Gondwana Studios and Luis Rey.
