If you live in Glasgow and love dinosaurs, then make sure to visit Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum before 16 August 2015 to catch Hatching the Past: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies.
This touring exhibition from New Zealand is making its first UK appearance in Scotland and it promises a rare and exciting glimpse into the life of dinosaurs through their eggs, nests, embryos and young.
The exhibition features each major plant and meat-eating dinosaur group and includes real fossilized eggs, adult dinosaur skeleton casts and interactive displays. Dinosaur eggs were first identified in the 1920s, although it took many years for scientists to appreciate the vast amount of information that could be gleaned from their study – such as how they raised their young, their growth and evolution. The photo is taken from the Hatching the Past Facebook page.
Don’t forget to borrow our Touch to See books on dinosaurs of the Jurassic, Triassic and Cretaceous periods, Dinosaurs ROAR! for blind and partially sighted children aged 11-14 years. They include atmospheric soundtracks and tactile pictures of dinosaurs including Allosaurus, Diplodocus and Stegosaurus, plus an Iguanodon with its nest of eggs. A great companion to borrow before visiting the exhibition.
