Dive Into February with Tons of New Dinosaur Train Fun and a Giveaway

Dinosaur Train

Dive Into February with Tons of NEW Dinosaur Train Fun!

Did you know that Aristotle (384-322 BC) is often referred to as the father of marine biology?  Aristotle is the first to record observations on marine life, and identified a variety of species including crustaceans, echinoderms, mollusks, and fish.  However, until submarines were invented, it was almost impossible to explore the deep ocean.  Today, submarines are used by marine biologists to collect samples, take videos and observe sea life in ways that humans would not be able to do!  Marine biologists are able to work at depths of several hundred meters for hours in these special submarines!

 There is so much to discover under water.  Just recently in December 2012, a giant, marine reptile that roamed the seas around 150 million years ago was identified as a new species.  The animal, now named Pliosaurus funkei spanned about 40 feet, had a massive 6.5 foot long skull and a bite as powerful as a Tyrannosaurus rex.

 We wonder what Buddy would think of that?!
