About the exhibition:
Horns, spikes, quills and feathers … the secret’s in the skin!
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 based almost entirely on their internal body structure. As a result, we’ve assumed that 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 preserve dinosaur skin and soft tissue, we can get a true glimpse of the bizarre and complex nature of the evolution of the Dinosauria. Revealing the secrets of the skin shows two orders of dinosaurs: one with feathers, scales, claws and sharp teeth; and the other with beaks, quills, scales, spikes, horns and massive body armour.
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 is designed to 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.
Don’t forget to check out the dinosaur specimens and activities at Lavington Library too!
Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival is a travelling exhibition produced by Gondwana Studios and Luis V. Rey.
