HAYS, Kan. -- Don't miss the opportunity to experience Africa's prehistoric rapacious reptiles. Sternberg Museum of Natural History's "GIANTS: African Dinosaurs" exhibit features 70-foot-long herbivores, carnivores with foot-long thumb claws, and flying creatures with 16-foot wingspans.

These fossils were discovered by "world renowned paleontologist and National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence" Dr. Paul Sereno. The exhibit provides visions of the ancient inhabitants of the Sahara when water was a common resource in the area.

"We have five full mounts of dinosaurs. Some of them are really huge, too," said Greg Walters, exhibits director at the museum. "Visitors are going to see dinosaurs that they haven't seen anywhere else."

The exhibit will be open to the public until Aug. 5. Admission is $8 for adults (13-59), $5 for children (4-12), $6 for senior citizens (60 and older), and $4 for FHSU students with ID.
