Spectacularly large creature

Renew peoples sense of wonder

A time that is green and lush

To understand what is beyond us

Enter his world. What can you see?

Evolutionary forces made him so big

Developed muscles, violently-colored tail

Long legs and feet, a narrow skull

Think.  How did this animal live?

Face like a vulture. Featherless

It lies in wait like a crocodile

Real life creature. Extinct reptile

Drawn into the animal.  It comes alive

It’s true .  The back of its skull is wide

Eyes separated facing  forward

Most formidable predator to walk the earth

Short arms in relation to the body

Fearsome teeth.  Ouch!  That hurt

Crushing bite and overwhelming force

Not on the menu for other dinosaurs

Cutting meat into chunks

Ok, Ok.  Rabbit it is

Frenzied behavior, exuberance

Bringing order to the chaos

Isn’t fatal,  just fatiguing

A zoo of many other creatures

~~~~~~~~~~

Storm raven,  leaves and turtle shells

A bone that’s crumbling.  It’s hollow

Thigh bone extracted from the ground

Dinosaur mummy in the  grasslands

Covered in mud, entombed in dirt

Near the coastal plain cut with rivers

By now over 65 million years old

Young Tyrannosaurus rex lies cold

Out into the museum world

Descendants of birds, extinct animals

Reconstructed museum skeleton

Imaging landscape across the eons

~~~~~~~~~

Basement Dwellers, Listen Up!

Hey, a fossil is still a rock
