Spinosaurus: Lost Giant Of The Cretaceous

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE

SPINOSAURUS: LOST GIANT OF THE CRETACEOUS

SPEAKER: NIZAR IBRAHIM, PALEONTOLOGIST

National Geographic Live and Centennial Concert Hall are pleased to bring to Winnipeg an afternoon with paleontologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim as he takes the audience on a prehistoric journey through the story of “Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous.” Tickets are on sale at Ticketmaster.ca, by phone 1-855-985-5000 and the Centennial Concert Hall box office.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

Meet Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered—larger than T. rex—and hear the incredible story of how this prehistoric giant was almost lost to science, before being brought back to light with the help of a remarkable young paleontologist.

Discovered more than half a century ago in Morocco by the great German paleontologist Ernst Stromer, Spinosaurus’ fossil remains were lost in the Allied bombing of Germany during World War II. With the help of recent fossil discoveries in the desert, and Stromer’s own data and drawings, contemporary scientists including German/Moroccan paleontologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim have reconstructed a full skeletal model of Spinosaurus, which has been featured on the National Geographic Channel and presented in the National Geographic Museum.

With amazing video recreating the lost world of the Cretaceous-era Sahara, Ibrahim will tell the story of Spinosaurus’ discovery, loss, and rediscovery, and explain what—other than its size—makes this ancient monster unique.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Nizar Ibrahim, Paleontologist
Ibrahim scours the deserts of North Africa for clues to life in the Cretaceous period, when the area was a large river system teeming with predators and prey.

SPEAKER HIGHLIGHTS

  • First paleontologist to become a TED Fellow
  • Named by Crain’s Chicago 2015 40 People Under 40
