Geoworld Dino Excavation Kit- Stegosaurus Skeleton
Curious Minds Did You Know? The stegosaurus had a small head and its brain was around the size of a plum!
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 Stegosaurus found in this kit was an armoured herbivorous dinosaur that lived in the late Jurassic period 155-145 million years ago. Found in the USA, it measured 9 metres in length. Scientists are still unsure what the large plates on its back were used for but there are details to suggest they contained lots of blood vessels and so could have been used to regulate body temperature!
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.
