[Since I forgot last Thursday’s post… and Monday’s post… and since the belated post went up late on Tuesday… Here’s another ROM post!]
Yesterday you learned that I have may have a bit of an obsession with architecture. Today, you’ll learn that I may have a bit of an obsession with dinosaur skeletons (and, on a smaller level, skeletons from other animals)!
When you walk into the ROM you’re greeted with a giant dinosaur. I would call it a brontosaurus, but I think that name’s no longer valid. I have no idea what it’s called.
[EDIT: I just googled “the dinosaur in the lobby of the ROM” and discovered that it’s a Futalognkosaurus.]
The best part is that you don’t have to just stare at it – you can also walk underneath it and find out what the inside of a dinosaur’s rib cage looks like!
But this is not the only dinosaur skeleton in the ROM, oh no! There are more on the second floor (in the aptly named Dinosaur areas – of which there are 2, side by side).
…Maybe I should have taken a picture of it’s head. I think I was more concerned with that skull on the right. I think that’s a triceratops… No, the triceratops is on the left… What’s on the right? Oh, there’s another triceratops skull behind that other skull!
Yeah, I really like the above picture. That’s one for the portfolio!
Next to the dinosaur areas is a mammals area that has more skeletons. I like how the skeletons aren’t just stuck in some display case.
The ROM has skeletons all around – you just have to look up to discover them.
