Dinosaurs at Dusk
Dinosaurs at Dusk is the story of a teenage girl and her father who explore the past to discover the evolution of dinosaurs into modern-day birds. Join them in a whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs, the Mesozoic era. Travel by a variety of off-road vehicles across an ever-changing planet teeming with Pterosaurs and other ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs!
Lucy and her father fly through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous to soar with Quetzacoatlus, escape from raptors, and ride behind Argentinosaurus. Soar with them through wide open canyons, sail over tumultuous oceans, hike through tropical rain forests, climb large ice cliffs, and parachute into vast sink holes, all the while chasing, and sometimes running away from, all manner of dinosaurs. Learn about science topics such as continental drift, proper motion of stars, asteroids and impacts, extinctions, and the convergent development of flight among species.
The Mesozoic was a time where feathers and wings developed for both warmth and as a means to take advantage of a variety of ecological niches. In total, the reign of the dinosaurs lasted nearly 140 million years before it was ended abruptly by an asteroid that crashed into Earth nearly 65 million years ago. Lucy and her father are able to witness the last days of the Cretaceous and the apparent devastation that was left behind with the cataclysmic “last day” of the dinosaurs.
