Titans of the Past - The Growth and Behaviour of Dinosaurs

"Titans of the Past - Dinosaurs & Ice Age Mammals"

October 2013

In the segment on "The Growth and Behaviour of Dinosaurs", the tracking of the development and growth of Triceratops, Pachycephalosaurus, Hypacrosaurus and T-Rex and the quality specimens found test the hypothesis of world-renowned palaeontologist Jack Horner and his research team who discovered that more than one-third of all dinosaur species classified from the Cretaceous Period may actually be juveniles and not different species as determined by palaeontologists for the past century. This exhibition is also the first attempt in the world to explore the concept of ontogeny - the development of an animal through its life and its implications for the science of palaeontology.

“The exhibition tells the story of a dinosaur’s life using real fossils and specimens that have played a pivotal role to facilitate our continuous efforts to demystify the prehistoric age and uncover new findings."
