Morning in the Cretaceous
It's early morning and a cast of Cretaceous creatures gathers at a watering hole – a dangerous place for most animals. Two hypacrosaurs, an adult and a juvenile, are thirsty. They've separated from the herd to find water. Nearby, two baby hypacrosaurs playfully chase a large dragonfly.
The adult stands on its hind feet, straining to hear, see or smell something in the trees. There's a crunching noise in some low-lying bushes by the water. One Prenoceratops snips and swallows leaves and twigs, while another slowly backs into a shallow hole to watch for predators.
In the murky water, garfish and frogs dart, wriggle and squirm. The watering hole is shrinking with the dry season. Nearly motionless, a turtle is stretched out in the hot sun, while insects buzz overhead. Another day begins in the Cretaceous world.
