Dinosaur Train
Hurricane at Pteranodon Terrace/Rafting the Cretaceous
Hurricane at Pteranodon TerraceThe long-awaited rains finally return to Pteranodon Terrace, but grow into a huge rainstorm that grows even bigger - into a hurricane! Dad hasn't seen it blow like this since he was a kid. They seek shelter, and Don discovers an entrance to a cave below their nest, where not only the Pteranodons, but also their other neighbors, the Lambeorsaurus family and Cindy Cimolestes, all take shelter for the night. In the morning, the storm has passed, but everyone must pitch in to rebuild their various nests.Educational Objectives Hurricanes are powerful storms that start over warm (tropical) ocean water but can move inland, causing high winds, torrential rains, flooding, and much damage. Rafting the CretaceousThe family is cleaning up the mess left over from the hurricane, and discover that a raft of logs has washed up two refugees from across the Western Interior Sea - a turtle named Aidan Adocus, and a small mammal named Tommy Ptilodus. Our family learns of their adventure, crossing the sea in the storm, and washing up at Pteranodon Terrace. They decide to take their new friends to the Dinosaur Train, and ride back with them to their home in Appalachia.Educational Objective Land animals occasionally, and accidentally, move between landmasses across large stretches of ocean. Sometimes their descendants manage to survive in the new home, forever changing the make-up of the animals living there. Scientists use the concept of "rafting" to explain how some animals are transported over water from one location to another.
