WEST PALM BEACH, FL -- Suzie is an ice age Mastodon dug up in West Palm Beach. She's been hanging out at the South Florida Science Museum for 40 years!
Now she's about to get some company.
"We are showing dinosaurs! We have a huge Giganotosaurus, we have Velociraptors as well as other carnivores which kids get crazy about." Dr. Rachel Docekal, Deputy Director of the Science Museum says.
If you're really 'diggin dinosaurs', you can do more than look.
"We like the kids to get in there and touch and feel... so many of these dinosaurs children are going to be able to touch," said Docekal.
It's a hands on experience children will be able to take with them.
Children throughout the exhibition will be able to make their own fossils and take them home.
"They'll be able to dig for fossils and then identify them in our outdoor dig pit," Docekal said.
And if you like big, they have the biggest carnivore!
Docekal explains, "Everybody thinks that T-Rex was just the biggest carnivore, but when they see the comparison between the head of the T-Rex and the skull of the Giganotosaurus…it's amazing how much larger the Giganotosaurus really was"
The 'Diggin Dinosaurs' exhibit starts Saturday Jan 16th and it runs through May 2nd.
Admission is $9 dollars for adults, $6 dollars for children and children under 3 are free.
