AMNH: SciCafe Why Dinosaurs Matter

May 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Is a penguin a dinosaur? Are the tiny arms of T. rex the key to its power and ferocity? What can long-dead dinosaurs teach us about our future? Plenty, according to paleontologist Diego Pol, who has discovered some of the largest dinosaurs to ever walk the Earth, including The Titanosaur. Pol weaves together stories of our planet’s geological history, exploring the meaning of fossils and our own place on the vast and bountiful Tree of Life.
