Come to the next Café Scientifique at Carnegie Science Center to hear the lecture Awakening the Titans: Discovering Giant New Dinosaurs in the Southern Continents by Matthew C. Lamanna, PhD, Associate Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
Dr. Matthew Lamanna and collaborators have spent the past two decades searching for titanosaur fossils throughout the southern continents. Foremost among their discoveries are a Patagonian behemoth that is the most complete giant titanosaur ever discovered, and a recently named Egyptian species that fills a 30 million-year gap in the dinosaurian fossil record of the African continent. Collectively, these discoveries cast critical new light on the anatomy, evolutionary history, and body dimensions of the most massive land animals that have ever existed.
Café Scientifique: Awakening the Titans is free and will be presented on Monday, December 2 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Carnegie Science Center. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Enjoy a pub-type atmosphere with food and drinks available for purchase. Although this event is free, you are asked to register.
