The picture below is on I-4, exit 17 at Plant City. It's another icon for the area. We wouldn't want you to miss the turn! Our Texas location is off the interestate. But the entrance is equally impressive. And, it's just in front of Dinosaur Valley State Park. So, you can see our life size dinosaurs then go see some of the best preserved dinosaur tracks in the world at the state park. They are all great trips!

I also brought two authentic dinosaur eggs. This was a nice fit becuase there were lots of expectant fathers in prehistoric times too! You can see authentic dinosaur eggs, raptor claws, dinosaur teeth, and many other fossils in our indoor Prehistoric Museum. It's just one of our many great exhibits.

Kentucky Program of Studies: SC-P-STM-S-1 – Students will use senses to observe and describe properties of material objects (color, size, shape, texture, flexibility, magnetism)
One exhibit at Dinosaur World is the “touch and tell”. This is part of the
Prehistoric Museum. At this exhibit, students use their sense of touch only
to feel the shape of a small dinosaur. Then, using their sense of touch only, they must decide what dinosaur they just felt. The teacher can lead a discussion on the importance of the sense of touch. The point should also be made on how the senses compliment each other and how senses take over when one is absent. The teacher can ask the question, “Would a different guess have been made if another sense was used?”

I took a Hadrosaur egg. Hadrosaurs are duck bill dinosaurs. They have teeth, but there are more like cheek teeth, which are better suited for plant eating. I also took a Therizinosaurus egg. These are very unique dinosaurs becuase they have huge front claws. Scientists believe these were used to dig for insects to eat.
We have lots of amazing fossils at Dinosaur World There two eggs are just examples of what can be found in our Prehistoric Museum.
