I see that the Natural History Museum in London is gearing itself up for the Easter weekend, with a number of exhibits to keep all us dinosaur fans happy.  Star specimens include the first fossil of a Tyrannosaurus rex ever found, which as we all know was one of the largest carnivores ever.  Then there is Iguanadon, which was the second dinosaur ever officially described by Gideon Mantel back in 1822, and which got the whole study of dinosaurs going.  The three-horned face of Triceratops, a large herbivore from the late Cretaceous is also on display, along with Baryonyx, the largest carnivore yet discovered in Europe.  Thought I would mention herbivores and carnivores together in the same sentence – you know how meat and veg go together.  Then there is an Oviraptor egg, a Daspletosaurus tooth and a Euoplocephalus tail club to round things off. GeoZone, DinoZone, Gerald Allan Davie, Dinoman, dinosaurs, pterosaurs, ichthyosaurs, plesiosaurs, Mesozoic, Walking with Dinosaurs, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Extinction, Trilobites, Cambrian Extinction, Cambrian, Permian, Dicynodonts, Trilobites, Cretaceous Tertiary, Cretaceous Paleogene, Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, Museums, Paleontology, Palaeontology, bones, archaeology, dinosaur eggs

Of course there are all the usual displays to be seen in that grand cathedral to science and reason, and don’t forget to take in the amazing architecture adorned with sculpted tiles and artwork.  Wish I could be there.  Go early to avoid the queues.
