Looking for something to do this weekend? Come to the Los Alamos Nature Center to watch Sea Monsters, A Prehistoric Adventure.
Starting at 2 p.m., Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25, take a journey back in time to see some of the most bizarre, ferocious, and fascinating creatures ever to inhabit the sea. This is the only weekend in June to see this popular film.
Unexpected discoveries gave paleontologists vital information for creating this film about a time when the middle of North America was an inland sea, home to strange, yet oddly familiar, creatures. Sea Monsters follows the life cycle of a female Dolichorhynchops and introduces a variety of aquatic reptiles including the “T-rex of the Ocean,” the 40-foot super-predator Tylosaurus.
The Bilingual Montessori School generously provided funding to bring Sea Monsters, A Prehistoric Adventure to Los Alamos.
Even though this film is not rated, it does show creatures eating other animals and settling disputes. Sea Monsters is not recommended for children under 6 years old. To see the trailer, please visit Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s events page at www.peecnature.org/events.
Tickets may be purchased by phone or at the nature center and are only $6 for adults and $4 for children. The breathtaking movie starts promptly at 2 p.m. and seating is limited. Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the show.
