Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous
Student and youth, just $19—fun for the whole family. Meet Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered—larger than T-Rex—and hear the incredible story of how this prehistoric giant was almost lost to science, before being brought back to light with help of paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim. With amazing video recreating the lost world of the Cretaceous-era Sahara, Ibrahim will tell the story of Spinosaurus’ discovery, loss, and rediscovery, and explain what—other than its size— makes this ancient creature so unique.
