Fun with Dinosaurs {The South African Museum Visit}

 

If you are a Cape Townian and you haven't visited The South African Museum, you are definitely missing out. This post is not about the museum though; rather to share some pictures of the very cool dinosaur exhibit. These photos are from two separate visits, in 2011 and 2013.



Don't these baby dinosaurs look so realistic? These are Massospondylus eggs hatching in central South Africa. This reconstruction is based on dinosaur egg fossils found in The Golden Gate Highlands National Park, South Africa.



Absolutely a fantastic outing for the family. After your visit, take a stroll through the Company's Garden and feed the squirrels and pigeons. 

Till next time, happy exploring.

I love dinosaurs! We recently went to the Natural History Museum in Utah- it was awesome. Wouldn't it be incredible to go on a worldwide dinosaur tour? I guess that's what books and the internet are for. :)

Robyn, now that sounds like an awesome tour! I would absolutely love to visit the United States and visit some of your museums. (The movies Night in the Museum 1 and 2 are absolute favourites in our house!)
