Dr. Jack Horner Speaking Engagement

05-16-2015

On Saturday, May 16 from 2:00PM to 3:00PM, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum will host a speaking engagement with the world famous paleontologist Dr. Jack Horner. Dr. Horner will discuss why bony features such as horns, plates, shields, and spikes were not used for defense or any kind of combat.

Dr. Horner discovered the first dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, the first evidence of dinosaur colonial nesting, the first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs, and the first dinosaur embryos. He is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost paleontologists, noted for his dramatic field work and some of the best reconstructions of fossil dinosaurs ever assembled.

Dr. Horner served as the technical adviser for Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park movies and is the inspiration for the movie’s lead character Dr. Alan Grant.
