Dig deeper into the world of dinosaurs at Dino Days

Visitors can embark on a prehistoric adventure at the 17th annual Dino
Days presented by Bank of America on Sunday, Dec. 27 and Monday, Dec. 28 at the
Delaware Museum of Natural History. A full schedule of special activities will
include dinosaur games, a fossil dig, and a paleontology scavenger hunt at this
annual dinosaur extravaganza.

Visitors can learn about "modern dinosaurs" and meet
live chicks while learning about the relationship between dinosaurs and modern
birds. Families can piece together puzzles of life-sized dinosaur heads and
step inside the Dino Adventure Zone to match dinosaur cutouts to their
corresponding era.

A special paleontology scavenger hunt will send families around
the Museum to look for different tools needed on an excavation. Then they can
stop by the Fossil Dig to uncover a Maiasaura
skeleton and search for a real fossil to keep. Kids can bring their favorite
fossil from home to ask "Mr. Fossil" what he knows about the
specimen. Live reptiles from the Philadelphia Zoo will be on view to compare
their similarities and differences to dinosaurs.

Other special activities available only on these two days are
professional face painting, Dino Photos in front of a prehistoric backdrop,
dinosaur movies on view all day, and a crayon rubbing craft to take home. The
Museum's current special exhibit, The
Science of SuperCroc
, will be the perfect complement to the festivities as
visitors view a 40-foot-long replica skeleton of this massive, extinct

Dino Days are presented by Bank of America.
