Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous Photo Recap

Better late than never, right? Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous opened at the National Geographic Museum last year (September 12th) yet it took me almost seven months to see the largest predatory dinosaur (50'+, bigger than the T-Rex) to ever roam the Earth. Considering dinosaurs are pretty much extinct in the nation's capital (the National Fossil Hall at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum is closed for renovations until 2019) the Spinosaurus exhibit proved to be a "real find." If you're a procrastinator like me, fret not... you still have six days (including today) to see it for yourself. Click here to learn more, or purchase tickets in advance.
