2008-10-10 – Oklahoma USA: Mostra sulle cure parentali dei dinosauri (Dinosaur, eggs, hatchling)

Museum hatches dinosaur-era exhibit
Displays provide opportunity for hands-on exploration

NORMAN — Dinosaur eggs, nests and embryos will be featured in “Hatching the Past: The Great Dinosaur Egg Hunt,” an exhibit opening Saturday at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, 2401 S Chautauqua Ave. The exhibit will be on view through Jan. 19.

Included in the exhibit are authentic dinosaur eggs and nests collected from all over the world. Eggs from each of the major plant- and meat-eating dinosaur groups are represented.

Linda Coldwell, museum spokeswoman, said visitors will be able to touch real dinosaur bones and reconstructed nests, dig for eggs, experience hands-on exploration stations and view animated video presentations featuring well-known dinosaur experts. Different sections of the exhibits will include life-like models of embryos and hatchlings, colorful illustrations of dinosaur family life and photographs of dinosaur hunters and their discoveries, she said.

Highlights of the exhibit are:

• A bowling ball-sized egg laid by a long-necked, plant-eating titanosaur that lived in what is now Argentina 75 million years ago.

• A large cluster of eggs laid by a duck-billed dinosaur.

• The longest eggs ever discovered — almost 18 inches long — laid by a giant species of oviraptor, an ostrich-like dinosaur.

• A presentation about the discovery of “Baby Louie,” a nearly complete skeleton of a dinosaur embryo discovered by Charlie Magovern in 1993.

Museum hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. The museum also will be open with free admission from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Nov. 1. For more information about the exhibit or other events and programs at museum, call 325-4712 or go to
