Well shoot, no cute kid pics, but a good set of resources for an animal straight out of the cretaceous period and myself one step closer to a cleaned out draft folder!! Enjoy!
Dinosaurs are a staple in our homeschooling life… I think Emanuel is a life long addict to the world of the prehistoric. The Tylosaurus is a rather interesting ocean dweller. Considered to have born live babies and been an active carnivore It was far from the top of the food chain. Found in the shallow seas of what is now North America this Cretaceous period critter is quite the interesting character. This Mososaur “knob lizard” was not a dinosaur but lived along side of them.
Our video is from Prehistoric World 2013… Sea Monsters a Prehistoric Journey(2007).
RAWR DINOSAURS!!! Monsoon season hit and I soaked myself hopefully saving our tomatoes… and now have to make the difficult decision as to whether or not we walk to the YMCA tomorrow… so in the wake of all the “drama” I have for you… a dinosaur!!!!
Back into the ocean with our dinosaurs and a rather unique flightless bird… the Hesperornis. This Cretaceous period find had feathers and teeth in its “beak”… The remains of this intimidating swimmer have been found in many areas in Canada. With its diet of fish and squid it swims quickly and it has to… predators rule the oceans at this point in history.
Now for our videos. There is a couple episodes in Dinosaur Train that include our bird. But the only one I could get my hands on through the Prime account in the house for free was Episode 6 of Season 1. You can find the link HERE. Our second video is the last in a series that I do believe Gavin now wants to watch from the start. Sea Monsters – The Most Deadly Sea.
