Scientists in Action: T. rex to Turkey

Program Description

Did you know that every time you enjoy a meal of chicken, duck, or turkey, you are actually enjoying some delicious dinosaur? That’s right – every bird alive today, from ostrich to oriole, pigeon to penguin, are descendants of theropod dinosaurs like T. rex and Velociraptor. But how did this change occur? What clues do scientists look for? Find out on this virtual behind-the-scenes trip with Museum paleontologists and ornithologists as they explore evolution with fossils, natural history collections, and more. Your questions will guide our exploration and will ensure that you never think of Thanksgiving dinner the same way again!
