DINOSAURS

This 6 years old kid I met a couple of  months   could name all the planets in the solar system and give me a talk on  Dinosaurs .
Made me spend an evening at the  ROM  after about 25 years. lo.
So I decided to go to the museum  and catch up a bit.  Will be sending the photos I took of the  late big beasts  to his Dad   , to give to the  youngster.

Some of what I learned  :
The most massive dinosaur to ever stomp the Earth was taller than a  ( 5 ) story building
Heavier than a Jumbo Jet
About 131 feet long
I saw a thigh bone (femur)  about 6 feet long and  you will not be able to lift it alone.

Made me think  of a project for some youngsters  next time in the Caribbean. With photos from the Dino's display.

Sounds like frightfully scary animals to have dealings with.  I wonder if was gentle giants or a set of bullies that   planned to run and ate their fellow animals at the time of their reign.
If so they had no peace.

Re: DINOSAURS

You mean to say Mary could be a couple of million years old ?
Like  prehistoric.
Not nice at all.
