Larry Verstraete and his 'Dinos' are leading a session for the Science Teachers' Association of Manitoba as part of the Manitoba Teachers's Society Professional Development Day (SAGE).
Science teachers from all over the province can join him from 10:30-11:30 am for the session at Westwood Collegiate, and then stick around for a signed copy of 'Dinosaurs' of the Deep.
About 'Dinosaurs' of the Deep:
Driving across the North American Heartland, surrounded by prairie, it is almost impossible to imagine that this was once a huge inland sea. The Western Interior Seaway, which split the entire continent of North America in half, once teemed with predatory creaturesâ€”fanged fish and turtles the size of small cars; prowling sharks and giant squid; hungry plesiosaurs and immense crocodiles. At the top of this prehistoric food chain, stretching up to nearly 15 metres (50 feet) and weighing a hefty 50,000 kilograms (50 tons), ruled the mighty mosasaur, the T. Rex of the sea.
Through a cooperative partnership with the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre (CFDC), home to â€˜Bruceâ€™, the worldâ€™s largest mosasaur skeleton, author Larry Verstraete and paleoartist Julius Csotonyi combine fascinating facts, astonishing discoveries, and the latest paleontological information to bring the ancient marine creatures of the Seaway to vivid life.
