VISIT RUSSIAN DINOSAURS IN L.A.

>From now until May 2, one can see the
Great Russian Dinosaurs, presented by Farmers
Insurance Group at the Los Angeles County Museum
of Natural History in Exposition Park. Specimens
include ancient animal life that roamed what is now
Russia and Mongolia 70 to 290 million years ago. The
exhibit features dozens of skeletons, skulls and
specimens of dinosaurs and rare mammal-like reptiles
that existed long before the Age of Dinosaurs.

VISIT RUSSIAN DINOSAURS ON-LINE

You can visit some of the collections of Russia's
Paleontological Institute (PIN) on-line at a website
courtesy of UC Berkeley. The PIN has been collecting
Dinosaurs from the Cretaceous of Mongolia for years
as part of a joint project with the Mongolian Academy
of Sciences. Many important discoveries were made
there, including the first actual evidence of egg laying
and nesting behaviour in dinosaurs. Protoceratops, an
ornithischian dinosaur, was found there along with
nests of eggs that contained preserved embryos.
