Review of the Dinosaur Resource Center

trex I visited an amazing dinosaur museum that had a whole bunch of really cool dinosaurs.  They had:

  • a T-Rex
  • a Pteradon
  • a Plesiasaur
  • and a whole lot more.

dinosaur_resource_centerWe had a really good tour guide, who is pretty much a real Paleontologist, named Stephen.  He is in college, studying to be a paleontologist, and he works for the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center.  He’s gone on 12 digs in only two years.  That’s a lot!

Stephen encouraged me to be a paleontologist.  He said it was really fun, and not to worry about making money.  As long as you enjoy what you you’re doing, you can find a way to make enough money.  He’s my role model!

In the gift shop, they had real ammonites, and casts of lots of other dinosaur bones.  The Dinosaur Resource Center makes casts of dinosaur bones for museums around the world.

They even made made casts for the movie Sea Monters!

No museum in the world could top this one, they had everything, or a whole lot.  If you’re in Colorado, that’s the place to go.

Have a funasouraus day!
