How did Tyrannosaurus rex become the iconic apex predator of North America 67 million years ago? Paleontologist Dr. Lindsay Zanno is literally digging up answers.
Each year Zanno spends several months on expedition, scouring the western badlands in search of clues. Along the way, she has discovered many new species — including some early predecessors of T. rex – and found evidence of how a global climate crisis during the Cretaceous Period changed the course of evolution for this prehistoric tyrant.
Dinosaur fans of all ages can learn about Zanno’s latest findings Tuesday, Feb. 21, when she brings her multimedia presentation T. Rex Rises to the Palladium in Carmel, part of the Center for the Performing Arts’ National Geographic Live Series. A free 10:30 a.m. matinee is perfect for school field trips, and the 7:30 p.m. evening presentation is suitable for the whole family, with tickets starting at $30, or just $15 for students.
