Antarctic Dinosaurs • Open for a Limited Time

Come along on a dramatic adventure to Antarctica—one of the most isolated and dangerous environments on Earth—and dig into a breathtaking discovery: dinosaurs! Antarctica today can be a harsh land of ice and snow, but 200 million years ago it was a bountiful, forested habitat where dinosaurs thrived. In Antarctic Dinosaurs, you’ll step back in time to discover the dinosaurs that ruled these now-fossilized forests.
