The Ohio Nature Blog goes Prehistoric
Visiting the parent's home can get a wee bit boring. It makes me wonder what I ever did when I was growing up here, but I think I watched an endless amount of television. Although HDTV hanging on the family room wall is amazingly awesome to watch, it can only take me so far. And I have photographed several things, including red-back and two-lined salamanders, but I am did not bring the memory card reader with me. What am I to do?
Well, I opened Google Picasa here on the 'rents computer and looked at photos that I have taken in the past, and came across several shots from our 2006 trip to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. If you ever wondered why the first dinosaurs that every kid learns are brontosaurus, allosaurus, T-rex, stegasaurus, triceratops and duck billed dinosaurs, a trip to the museum will clear up any doubts. These dinosaurs are the stars here, and have been for some time. Many of the mounts originated in the 1890's. Enjoy!
