Sea Monsters

Wildlife Experience

While digging in the mud of a Kansas river bank, a group of scientists discovers...bones! Whose bones are they? Where did they come from? And what are they doing in this unlikely spot?

All of those questions are answered in the latest film to hit the Extreme Screen Theater at the Wildlife Experience, 10035 South Peoria Street in Aurora. As it turns out, the scientists are paleontologists, and the bones belong to an ancient female Dolichorhynchops, a seal-like reptile that lived eons ago during the Late Cretaceous period. National Geographic's Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure follows the Dolichorhynchops and her offspring through adventures in the sea; ultra-realistic, high-tech 3D computer animation bring these long-dead animals to life, and the animated segments of the film are interspersed with live-action re-creations of actual paleontological digs, explaining the scientific basis for the animation — how we know, thousands of years later, what the Dolichorhynchops might have been doing so very long ago.

Sea Monsters shows daily on the Wildlife Experience's IMAX screen through October; tickets are $4.95 to $7.95. Visit www.thewildlifeexperience.org or call 720-488-3300; to learn more about the film, visit www.nationalgeographic.com/seamonsters.
