Mystic Creatures

CactusNothing could be better than going to the American Museum of Natural History with your granddaughter. There are always special exhibits — today we saw Mythic Creatures, Frogs, and Dinosaurs Alive!. Frogs was really interesting. I was not aware that there are more than 5,000 different kinds of them. The museum had a large collection of live frogs ranging from 1/4 inch to six inches and in every imaginable color and skin type. The poison dart frog is said to have enough poison to kill 20,000 mice or ten humans. South Americans use the poison to put on tips of arrows to kill game. Mystic Creatures was about sea serpents and dragons (we saw many of them in China recently) and assorted other "mystic creatures". The IMAX production about dinosaurs was a stunning forty-five minutes of classic super-hgih quality large format video with crystal clear audio content. The raptors seemed as though they would run right over the audience. Paleontologists are discovering more dinosaur fossils than ever.
