More than twenty-five hands-on experiments include Breaking Bones, which uses chicken bones to see how fossils were preserved; creating a replica of a feathered Archaeopteryx fossil; and using a turkey neck to dissect a Brachiosaurus' bone structure.

Meeting the Whales
The Equinox Guide to Giants of the Deep
Paperback      ISBN: 0921820232

In the deep, dark canyons of the sea live the largest animals on Earth: the heart of the blue whale is the size of a sports car, the eye of a right whale is the size of a grapefruit, and the 'wing span' of a humpback's flippers can reach 12 metres. In Meeting the Whales, author Erich Hoyt pieces together the life histories of the enigmatic giants that swim the waters of the northern hemisphere. Hoyt has spent years working with these mammals, and his fascination and empathy for them is evident in Meeting the Whales.

Bringing us face-to-face both with these intriguing creatures and the scientists who study them, Hoyt leads us through the underwater world of whales, investigating their unique communication skills and feeding and mating behaviors, their remarkable migrations and their astounding acrobatics. Beautifully illustrated by whale specialist Pieter Folkens, and the work of the world's best wildlife photographers, Meeting the Whales is a unique contribution to the study of this increasingly rare animal.
