Footprints in Time - Exploratory Course

May 2, 2014 - June 6, 2014

Dinosaur behavior

You have probably seen the dinosaurs and other fossils at the Museum.  But, have you ever wondered how dinosaurs walked, or about where dinosaurs raised their young?  In this course, we will explore the evidence left behind by the many magnificent extinct organisms, focusing on ichnofossils, or trace fossils—the fossilized remains that indicate the behaviors of past life, such as track-ways and burrows frozen in rock.  We will use these to infer how these creatures lived and behaved by comparing them to currently living animals.
