Geoworld Dino Excavation Kit- Velociraptor Skeleton
Curious Minds Did You Know? Many fossils are so small that you can only see them with a microscope!
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 Velociraptor found in this kit was a carnivore that was much smaller than many people think - growing up to 2 metres in length, 0.5 metres tall at the hips and weighing around 15kg. While they appear featherless in movies, palaeontologists discovered quill knobs on a well-preserved Velociraptor from Mongolia in 2007, indicting the dinosaur had feathers.
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+
