Mesozoic Flora – Trees for use in Dinosaur Scenes
As well as producing fact sheets on prehistoric animals that team members can send out with every named dinosaur that Everything Dinosaur sells, the dinosaur experts in the company have also been working on the designs for some drawings of prehistoric trees, – cycads, bennettitales and so forth. These drawings will be used to help our work in schools when we conduct dinosaur workshops. We can show the young dinosaur fans the sort of plants that herbivorous dinosaurs ate.
