Hall Of Orthiniscian Dinosaurs – Our Family Adventure At American Museum Of Natural History Part 3
Welcome September! Boy, it has been a month and a half now after our family tour at American Museum Of Natural History, NYC. I’m still mesmerized of the pictures I took in this museum. They are really something to behold about especially that they are real dinosaur fossils and fantastic models. If you are wondering where is the part 2 of this adventure, you can find it here: Hall Of Saurischian Dinosaurs.
A little bit about the Saurischians, did you know that there are over 30 T-rex specimens found at the western part of the US? Most of them are found in Montana, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. They are also found outside the country which is at Canada and Mongolia. This Tyrannosaurus Rex specimen in AMNH is one of the almost completed skeleton fossil in the whole world. It is discovered by Barnum Brown at Montana in 1908. The last auctioned T-rex fossils was sold around $1,052,500 at Manhattan auction in May 2012.
This is the second huge Hall we visited on the fourth floor at AMNH, The Hall of Ornithischian Dinosaurs. Orthinischian comes from the Greek words: ornitheos meaning “of a bird” and ischion meaning “hip joint”. At the entrance, on the left side, you will see this magnificent Stegosaurus models.
Stegosaurus are also called “Roof-covered lizards” because of those bony plates that are on its back.
This is George, my toddler, enjoyed our dinosaur tour. He thought some models are just like his toys.
