I Love Dinosaurs

We are three kids and our Mom who love dinosaurs. We like to read about them and learn about them. We will be exploring the internet to find cool dinosaur stuff and we will tell you about it here. We will tell you all about our adventures too!

Our favourite paleontologist--Paul Sereno

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.
