Oliver comparing his hand to an Acro claw. This is the same as the skull that was by itself. It's similar to the T-Rex but it had three fingers instead of two and it had a thinner face. There are other differences but those are the two I remember.
We checked out some snakes...boys, how do snakes smell? That's right! With their tongues!!
Oliver touched an alligator! Also a turtle, a guinea pig and a hissing cockroach. I also touched the alligator and the roach. It hissed at me and I ran away!!

Oliver found the skull of a dinosaur. This was NOT a T-Rex ...but I can't remember the name. Oliver said he died and then turned into a fossil. He was right! He was a little scared to go into the room where this was at first but after I walked up and stuck my hand in it's mouth he was ok.
Oliver told Wyatt about how dinosaurs got hatched from eggs just like this one!
Oliver walked in the footsteps of the dinosaurs. I think the dinosaurs were his favorite part!

Wyatt was more interested in the tiny toy seal, walrus, shark and ray.
A crabby would live in THAT shell! Oliver knew a little bit about shells.

We tried matching up teeth to pictures but I don't know that we did a great job.
This is the MEGALODON mouths. The first one is a baby then all the way up to an adult, full grown one. I wish I had gotten one with a person for scale but I'd say the biggest one would be about two of me so...10 feet!

Wiggle your cartiledge! Shark bones are made of the same stuff as our noses and ears!
How do you measure up? Oliver and Wyatt are smaller than even the smallest shark.
