Come to a New Mexico PBS Science Café! A clip from an episode of NOVA scienceNOW, Nature or a comparable program will be screened. An expert on the topic will attend to answer questions & have an open discussion with the audience.

Bigger Than T.rex

Tyrannosaurus was one of the largest predatory dinosaurs to ever live. It has become the standard against which all other predatory dinosaurs are compared. It is now also one of the best known dinosaurs.

Come to the April New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment from NOVA Bigger Than T.rex. Then, participate in a discussion with paleontologists about Tyrannosaurus rex and other large predatory dinosaurs that ruled New Mexico over 65 million years ago.

Speakers include:
Dr. Tom Williamson
Curator of Paleontology at the NMMNH&S since 1994. Tom studies Late Cretaceous and Paleogene vertebrates and changes in terrestrial ecosystems spanning the Cretaceous - Paleogene boundary. As part of his studies, he has collected many dinosaur fossils, mostly from northwestern New Mexico, and he is an expert on Late Cretaceous tyrannosaur and pachycephalosaur dinosaurs.
