Snake vs. Dinosaur: Caught in the Act
See the new exhibit about Sanajeh indicus, a very large prehistoric snake caught in the act of preying on a baby dinosaur hatchling. The exhibit features a spectacular sculptural recreation of the scene by Chicago-area paleo-artist Tyler Keillor.
Predators & Prey Discovery Day
Saturday, March 22, 9 am to 5 pm
The 2014 Family Reading & Science Program culminates with a special day-long event at the Museum. Explore the interactions of predatory animals and their prey from prehistory to today. What can fossils like Sanajeh from India tell us about their world? What effects are humans having on predator/prey relationships? Bring the whole family and enjoy activity stations and special guests. Suitable for all ages. Free and open to the public. Made possible, in part, by support from the Toyota USA Foundation.
