An exhibition containing 24 fossils of animal and vegetal origin from marine and terrestrial environments and dating back from various geological periods ranging from Ordovician to Miocene can be visited until April 22 at the Sun Plaza commercial center in Bucharest. According to a communique, the exhibition, presented by the Turkish Association of Science and Paleontology, will be accompanied by interactive classes on the history of fossils, classes in which children and adults can find out more about the origin and nature of the exhibits. The classes will be offered by two reputed scientists, Onur Yildiz and Cihat Gundogdu. The fossil exhibition includes animatronic dinosaurs fitted with saddles for the entertainment of those brave enough to ride them. The biggest exhibit is a fish that was discovered in Brazil and that is 110 million years old, dating back to the Cretaceous. The bone structure of its elongated body, its sharp teeth, the shape of its jaws and the fine details of its tail were perfectly preserved during millions of years. Likewise, one the most interesting fossils included in the exhibition is the skull of a white tiger. The skull was discovered in China’s Dongbei region and is 32 million years old. The oldest exhibit is a starfish discovered in Morocco and dating back from the Ordovician, approximately half a billion years ago.
