The show features a wide range of fossil specimens and fossil casts. Among the highlights is Bambiraptor feinbergi, one of the best-preserved dromaeosaur fossils ever found and a specimen that illustrates why paleontologists think that these small dinosaurs are one of the closest links to modern birds.
A major highlight of the exhibition is an enormous, 700-square-foot walk-through diorama of China's Jehol Forestthe most detailed re-creation of a prehistoric environment ever attempted. Visitors get a chance to stroll back in time through the forest as it existed 130 million years ago during the Mesozoic era and come face to face with the creatures that lived there in the form of scientifically accurate, fleshed-out, life-size models of more than 35 different species of dinosaurs, reptiles, early birds, insects, and plants.
Considered one of the most important fossil areas in the world, the Jehol Forest, which existed in northeast China's Liaoning Province, has yielded an abundance of new discoveries.
