Dinosaur rEvolution: Secrets of Survival

Horns, spikes, quills and feathers. The secret is in the skin!

Not long ago, our knowledge of dinosaurs was based almost completely on the assumptions we made from their internal body structure. Bones and possible muscle and tendon attachments were what scientists used mostly for reconstructing their anatomy. The rest, including the colours, were left to the imagination, and needless to say the skins were lizard-like and the colours grey, green and brown prevailed.

We are breaking the mould with this Dinosaur Revolution!

Thanks to a vast web of new research, that this time emphasises also skin and ornaments, we are now able to get a glimpse of the true, bizarre and complex nature of the evolution of the Dinosauria. This exhibition looks at the fibrous proteins called keratin that covered their skin in the form of spikes, quills, protofeathers and feathers, that served as insulation, defensive-offensive items or simply ornamentation.

Permian Monsters: Life Before the Dinosaurs

Step back in time 290 million years when bizarre-looking animals dominated life on land and sea, and find out about the greatest extinction the world has ever seen.
This unique traveling exhibition brings the past back to life with fossilized skeletons and full size life models of the animals that ruled the world millions of years before the age of dinosaurs, in a time known as the Permian period.

The Permian period ended with the largest extinction Earth ever experienced which wiped out 90% of all species on the planet. The cause of the end-Permian extinction had baffled scientists for the past 20 years but a recent discovery shed new light on the cause of this catastrophe: global warming. Find out how this familiar phenomenon, started by a huge volcanic eruption, set off a chain of events that led to the greatest extinction on Earth.
