Last Day of Chinosaurs at the Bruce Museum


1358360990_thumb[1]Since the first paleontological expedition to Mongolia by Roy Chapman Andrews of the American Museum of Natural History in the 1920s, the allure of discovering exotic Asian dinosaurs has been every dinosaur paleontologists’ dream. Since then, dinosaurs from China have been unearthed, revealing their relationships to birds as evidenced by the presence of feathers alongside their scales.

Several of most spectacular of these dinosaurs are at the Bruce Museum, for the final exhibition day of Chinasaurs: Dinosaur Discoveries from China. This exhibition features skeletons, skulls, nests and eggs of more than a dozen rare Asian dinosaurs, some highlighting new evidence of the close relationship between birds and dinosaurs. After today, Chinosaurs leaves the Bruce Museum!
