Her latest fun dino activity has been excavating the dinosaur fossil kit her great-grandmother got her for Christmas. So far, we've dug up a claw (or tooth?) but are still digging in case something else is in there.
Look at those big-kid hands, I mean really. She is halfway to a paleontologist already! And she does still love to hear recounted the story of the Day All the Dinosaurs Died. I borrow heavily from Radiolab's version, which is insane, and you can check it out here: She also likes to hear how mammals, and eventually humans, evolved after that moment, which really can take awhile to tell.
Also, I discovered this ex-dinosaur this morning. I think Patches would have helped hasten the end of the dinosaurs if they had been chewy and delicious:
|It used to be a brachiosaur. Tail, head/neck, and two legs missing.|
