As the Chief Paleontology Advisor for Be the Dinosaur, Dr. Hutchinson gave the audience fun facts about the Tyrannosaurus rex and compared the King of the Cretaceous to other large animals today.

    Dine with the Dinosaurs

     

    On Friday, June 20, 2014 Baylor University's Mayborn Museum celebrated another great summer exhibit where guests were invited to "Dine with the Dinosaurs."

    Museum members and guests were treated to an assortment of appetizers that appealed to both carnivores and herbivores, and a volcanic dessert.

    Guests were invited to unleash their wild side and explore life in the Cretaceous. Below we present a glimpse from the evening.
