For 160 million years, dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Giant plant-eating dinosaurs fed on lush ferns, small but ferocious carnivores stalked the great herbivores, and oceans teemed with fish, squid and a never-ending variety of plant life. Even the skies were filled with the pterosaurs and Earth’s first birds. But after flourishing for millions of years, most of them vanished, leaving only their bones and impressions in the fossil record.

The great extinction of these magnificent creatures, however, won’t keep us from imagining what they were like in their own habitat, or seeing the magnitude of their size in comparison to our own. It just means we have to do a little calculating, a little digging, a little reconstruction — and pay a visit to Dinosaur Day Science Fest: Force of Nature at Sierra College Natural History Museum.
