When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs

December 6, 2009

Northwestern University Chicago Campus, Thorne Auditorium
375 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL, United States


The Chicago Council on Science and Technology, National Geographic, and Project Exploration presented:

For a long time, the Age of Reptiles seemed to belong only to its “stars,” the dinosaurs — but not anymore. Thanks to strange fossils coming out of the Sahara and other places, we now know that it was a world full of bizarre and terrifying crocodiles as well — ones that not only rubbed shoulders with the dinosaurs — but sometimes ate them.

Welcome to the new crocodile Cretaceous… complete with tiny buck-toothed crocs, dog-like crocs, and terrifying triple-fanged nightmares that probably galloped after dinosaurs. Join C²ST and paleontologist Paul Sereno for an intense scientific journey to breathe life into these long extinct terrors — and recreate a lost world few even imagined existed.
