LEARN MORE ABOUT "THE CURSE OF T REX" ON-LINE

PBS has established a NOVA web site featuring "The Curse 
of T Rex" so that we can learn more about the background of 
that dinosaur documentary.  It includes information about 
non-dinosaur life which co-existed with Tyrannosaurus rex, 
educational resources for educators, show times, where to 
dig for dinosuars, and information about Tyrannosaurus rex 
itself.

EXPLORE THE OCEAN WHICH ONCE COVERED KANSAS

In Kansas, the Cretaceous Period, from about 135 million 
years ago to 65 million years ago, is represented by marine 
and estuarine deposits which are the product of a shallow 
inland sea.  This shallow ocean was home to a variety of 
extinct marine animals such as giant clams, rudists, crinoids, 
squid, ammonites, numerous sharks, bony fish, turtles, 
plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, pteranodons, and marine birds.  You 
can explore this ocean at the Oceans of Kansas Paleontology 
web site.

EXPLORE PAST PAPERS ON DINOSAURS

The Linda Hall Library is now presenting an exhibition of 
original printed materials related to the history of dinosaur 
discovery. On view are most of the classic papers of dinosaur 
lore, including the original publications of Gideon Mantell, 
Richard Owen, Othniel Marsh, and a host of others. The 
focus of the exhibition is on images, both of discovery and of 
restoration. The exhibition runs from October 17, 1996 
through April 30, 1997. The online site allows one to proceed 
through all forty-nine items of the exhibition, but includes 
links to thirty-five more works that could not be accomodated 
in the exhibition hall. There are 136 original images.
