Discover the bones and sickle-like claw of the deadly raptor
Experience the excitement of discovery like a real paleontologist! Buried
inside earth-colored, hard plaster are the "fossilized bones" of
Deinonychus, the small but deadly raptor who, alongside its pack, could
bring down and devour a dinosaur much larger than itself. When unearthed,
Deinonychus skeleton is displayed in the "ground", complete with its
extraordinary sickle-like toe claw. This incredible dig simulates the real
thing as the "paleontologist" carefully chips, scrapes and brushes away
plaster to reveal, bit by bit, the remains of this Cretaceous predator.
Use authentic archaeological tools to carefully chip, scrape, and brush
away plaster and reveal a museum quality replica.
When your excavation is complete, the plastic tray serves as a frame to
display your find on a wall or shelf.
