This exhibition has been 250 million years in the making. It features the fossilised skeletons of long-extinct reptiles that ruled the land areas of the world some 50 million years before the dinosaurs. Highlights include five large fossilised skeletons of mammal-like reptiles, supported by graphics portraying what they may have looked like in the flesh. Two walk-around dioramas titled ‘Scavengers’ and ‘Grubbers’ feature finely sculpted life-sized models of these animals in scenarios that have been reconstructed from the actual fossils on display.
