Dinosaur Month

Apparently, it’s Dinosaur Month! This newspaper has a good list of places in Florida participating in some way. My favorites:

The Florida Museum of Natural History: Just in time for Dinosaur Month, the museum has opened “The Hall of Florida Fossils: Evolution of Life and Land.” The exhibit will feature more than 500 fossils of which more than 90 percent are authentic and were found within 100 miles of the museum’s location.

Museum of Arts and Sciences: The museum is home to the most complete fossil record discovered in Florida, the 13-foot tall skeleton of a giant ground sloth. This vegetarian could have weighed three to five tons and eaten a daily ration of 300 pounds of plants. The museum also features drawers chock full of dinosaur bones and teeth.
