Jurassic Quest ready to take a bite out of Lethbridge

Dinosaurs may be extinct, but their popularity has continued to grow. A traveling exhibit called Jurassic Quest is coming to Lethbridge in just a few short months. The company brings in life-size animatronic dinosaurs. You can expect to see Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brontosaurus, and a 50 foot long Megalodon just to name a few.

Safari Sarah, a dinosaur trainer with Jurassic Quest showcased the difference between fossilized teeth coming from a regular shark and teeth coming from a Megalodon.

“But you can see that it’s darker in the middle and then it has coloring on the side, whereas this tooth actually is gray all over. Now, the reason for the difference in that color is actually because of the process of fossilization. Whenever a bone is in the ground, the actual structure of the bone will break down and allow for gas- for minerals to flow in and solidify it as a fossil. But when there are different minerals in the ground, it can actually change the color of fossils. That’s so cool, right?”

Jurassic Quest will be at the Lethbridge and District Exhibition grounds from April 14 to the 16.
