Dinosaur Teeth are Way Cool Because…
January 6, 2019
Did you know that dinosaurs could continuously replace their teeth throughout their lives, and some had hundreds of teeth in their mouths at one time?
Even though dinosaur teeth seem very different from the teeth of humans and other animals, there are also many similarities. Join Dr. Kirstin Brink to examine dinosaur teeth in detail and discover more about their structure and replacement patterns. You will learn how comparisons between fossils and living animals can help understand the diets, lifestyles, and evolution of extinct animals.
Dr. Kirstin Brink is a palaeontologist interested in the evolution and development of teeth. She is currently a Banting postdoctoral research fellow in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of British Columbia.
Included with museum admission or membership.
