Located in the area of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the Maya civilization has flourished for nearly 3000 years. The artistic creativity, ingenuity, and determination of these early people combined to produce some of the world’s most beautiful ancient architecture. Our exploration of Maya architecture will uncover its origins around 1500 BC through its collapse in the 1200’s AD and how different geographical locations & culture may have influenced the development of its great cities & regional architectural styles.

Does the recently discovered and controversial "Dueling Dinosaurs" fossil provide proof of the validity of  Nanotyrannus as a species vs classification as a juvenile T. rex? Without a doubt according to Robert and his colleagues Dr. Robert Bakker of the Houston Museum of Natural History and Pete Larson of the Black Hills Institute.

Nanotyrannus is the rarest and most enigmatic of the Late Cretaceous tyrannosaurids. Its sleek build, smaller size, and powerful legs made it an exceptionally agile and lethal predator. "Tara" is one of only three of her kind yet discovered, and is  the only fully mounted skeleton of this fascinating dinosaur.
