Wanda's Book Reviews

I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles.  (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).

Weekend Wanderings

Friday I went to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology to hear a lecture about what you can learn about dinosaur physiology from the fossils.  The guest was actually a physiologist, specializing in heart & lungs, rather than a paleontologist.

 

Then, it was time for a spin around the galleries:

 

An ancient marine reptile, found in a remote area of B.C.

 

A Gorgosaurus skull.

 

The Tyrant Lizard King himself.  This T. rex was found in the Crowsnest Pass of Alberta.

 

A recently discovered armoured dinosaur, found in the oilsands in Northern Alberta.

 

I'm glad I got my annual visit in while the weather was glorious!
