The first video we ever saw about a paleontologist was the National Geographic
special "I Love Dinosaurs", which showed Paul Sereno
digging up Jobaria
. We really loved the part where he went to the Bowmanville Zoo
and worked with Angus
the elephant. We loved it so much that when we went to Ontario last summer, we got our Gramma to take us to visit Angus. He was amazing. We are so glad that he has gone to Africa to be with other really big elephants (Mom's note: they don't know, don't tell them, please!)
We visited Paul Sereno's site
today and really liked it! We visited all the dinosaurs
he has discovered. We liked all of them except Sarcosuchus, the Super Croc
. It scared us too much and we wouldn't let our mom watch the cool movie. (Darn! says mom...)
We also checked out Project Exploration
that was started by Paul Sereno and his wife Gabrielle Lyons. It looks like they have some really cool things for kids to do. We'll have to visit it again and read some of the reports by kids on what they did.
We'd like to visit Paul Sereno one day. We think he is really cool.
