Geoworld Dino Excavation Kit- Styracosaurus Skeleton
Curious Minds Did You Know? A team of computer scientists and palaeontologists from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Museum managed to recreate the sound a Parasaurolophus made by simulating it blowing air through its air cavities!
Try your hand at being a palaeontologist with the Dino Excavation kits from Geoworld! Use real palaeontologist’s tools (hammer and chisel) to discover the various pieces of Dinosaur skeleton waiting to be set free from the gypsum bricks that hold them prisoner. Once you've dug-up and cleaned the skeleton, the pieces fit together to form a small model for you to keep!
The Styracosaurus found in this kit was a herbivore that roamed the planet around 75 million years ago. It grew up to 5.5 metres long, stood 1.8 metres tall and weighed a whopping 3 tonnes. From studying the bone beds, scientists believe that it may have been a herd animal, travelling in large groups.
There are twelve different Dinosaurs from Geoworld to discover! Each skeleton is made up of about 13 pieces and the hammer and chisel are included in the packaging.
Ideal for children aged 6+
