2008-11-24 – Philadelphia, USA: Hadrosaurus foulkii on shown (mostra)

Hadrosaurus foulkii, the fossil phenom

The Academy of Natural Sciences will open its newest exhibit, “Hadrosaurus Foulkii: The Dinosaur That Changed the World,” at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The exhibit will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the scientific recognition of the Hadrosaurus foulkii, the most complete dinosaur skeleton found to that time.

Discovered in Haddonfield in 1858, the fully mounted skeleton of the 23-foot-long plant-eater will be displayed at the academy for the first time since the 1930s.

Three scenes will tell the story of Hadrosaurus foulkii. Visitors will learn about the discovery of the fossilized bones, the role of academy curator and University of Pennsylvania anatomy professor Joseph Leidy in identifying them, and the efforts of artist and naturalist Benjamin Hawkins to first capture what the dinosaur looked like.

Through April 19, the academy will host Hadrosaurus foulkii-themed events and attractions, including Dino Weekend beginning next Friday through Nov. 30, and Dinosaur Day on Dec. 27. Paleopalooza, Feb. 14 to 16, will feature presentations by scientists and fossil experts.


“Hadrosaurus Foulkii: The Dinosaur That Changed the World,” 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (exhibit opens at 9 a.m. Saturday for members and will be on display until April 19) at the Academy of Natural Sciences, 1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Admission: $10, $8 for children ages 3-12, seniors, college students, and military members, and free for academy members and children younger than 3. Information: 215-299-1000 or
