Feathered dinosaurs?

If you are passionate about the fascinating world of dinosaurs, you may know already that NYC’s Museum of Natural History is one of the best places in the world to enjoy for hours surrounded by the remains of these magnificent creatures from ancient times. The hundreds of skeletons, fossils and diagrams filled with information regarding these extinct giants always succeed in delight any kind of visitor, from school groups to amateur paleontologists, who can also enjoy from time to time the varied temporal exhibitions displayed in the Museum. The most recent, however, is probably one of the most fascinating due to its focus on the complex evolutionary process that allowed dinosaurs to survive until today…from a certain point of view, that is. Dinosaurs Among Us, opened last March 21st, will allow the public to know in-depth both the theories and the evidences that point towards how these reptiles initiated their transition into the birds that live around us. Can you imagine a feathered T-Rex? Did you know that many dinosaurs shared a startling bird-like physiognomy, to the point to have actual beaks? Why did they settle in nests? Questions that will be shared by the thousands of guests that will go, for sure, to an exhibition that is going to make all of us look at birds in a very different way from now on.
