Lonely Dinosaurs

MPM's dinosaurs are lonely!

We received an urgent report from our Museum Security staff that our dinosaurs are lonely!

T. rex has stopped eating, Dromaeosaurus is inconsolable, and Stegosaurus hasn't spoken a word. It seems they really miss everyone coming to say hi to them...

So we need your help.

  • note to the dinos
  • photo with the dinos

...or anything else you can think of to cheer up our lonely dinos?

Tag us on social media with #LonelyDino, or email your submission to communications@mpm.edu. We'll share it with our dinos... as well as on this page!

This coloring book seems to be dedicated to the dinos. Great job, team!

Dear Dinos,
Watch out! The
T. rex comes up to you wagging his tail. He's all smiles and giggles, and then bang!  He turns! Whatever you do, don't try to pet him.
