[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I revisited some of the remarkable museums in Toronto. On this picture I show three dinosaur
skeletons on display in the Royal Ontario Museum, it is famous for its fossil collection.
- The first picture, was taken in the lobby at the Bloor street entrance, it shows a new acquisition, a replica of a fossil found in Argentina in 2000 and was named Futalognkosaurus (giant chief lizard). The experts estimate it lived 87 million years ago.
- The skeleton on the second picture is in the Samuel Hall, which was the lobby of the building before the new "crystal" extension was added to the museum in 2006. This 70 million year old fossil is the skeleton of a Hadrosaur (duckbill) Dinosaur from Deer River Valley, Alberta, Canada
- The third picture was taken in the Dinosaur Gallery on the second floor of the new Michael Lee-Chin Crystal building. This 12 m long skeleton, called Tyrannosaurus rex (tyrant lizard king), it is from McCone County, Montana, USA. This dinosaur was a meat-eater, lived 66 million years ago.
