The presentation is a brief overview of how the earth formed, what developments occurred on the earth to allow for the dinosaurs to populate the planet and the catastrophic event that caused the relatively sudden death of most life on earth including sea life, land animals and plant life. The numerous fossil exhibits include a T-Rex skull, T-Rex footprint and T-Rex skeletal foot.
