The dinosaur tour was great! Very educational and interesting, and all of my group (ages 4 to 48) enjoyed it immensely. Lauren Billings is a fantastic tour guide and she really knows her stuff. I recommend it to anyone and everyone who is looking for something different to do.
Happy Friday! Today we bid a very fond farewell to our fabulous summer interns, Zack McConnell & Wafee Choudhury. Alex Beard headed up the last field trip to visit one of our clients, Billings Productions, Inc.

Took my grandbaby to the Houston Zoo & she was in absolute awe of your dinosaurs.
The Kelly Cup was out yesterday making some new friends at Billings Productions, Inc. Don't be surprised if you see some of the Cup's new buddies at several games this season. Visit www.AllenAmericans.com/ticket-plans to make sure you don't miss any action this season.

Say Cheese!

We can't tell you enough how completely amazing your dinos are! After meeting dilophosaurus today and getting to check out all the others! Incedible! He looks just like Sabian's drawing, the colors are beautiful! Thank you for the gifts, Sabian was super exited about the fossil!

If you have visited The Dinosaur Company lately, you might have noticed this new art piece in our lobby.

It was created to honor Nik Billings, one of the founders of Billings Productions, Inc. (The Dinosaur Company) He designed the company logo and created the first company website. Nik was always a doodler, but it became a part of his professional life when he needed a way to avoid falling asleep during work meetings. These doodles are just a few of the decade of drawings he left for us. Besides drawing, Nik also really enjoyed bringing odd-flavored snacks for his coworkers and making others smile. While Nik passed away in 2020, we honor him by imbuing his creativity throughout our company, and leaving googly eyes in inconspicous places.

It's time for your results!

It is the Megalania!!!!

The Megalania is an extinct species of monitor lizard that inhabited Australia. It is the largest terrestrial lizard that is known to have existed, reaching an estimated length of 11.5-23 ft!! The youngest fossils found of the Megalania date to about 50,000 years ago so early Australian human settlers may have encountered the Megalania in the wild!

Congratulations to our winners this week!

It is the Muttaburrasaurus!

Muttaburrasaurus was found in Australia. They had a hollow, bony bump on their snout which some paleontologists believe had something to do with a sense of smell or an ability to make noise!

Happy National Zoo Keeper Week!

We are late to this one, but we couldn't miss the chance to post about zookeepers and how much we appreciate their hard work! One of the best things about our job is that we get to partner with AMAZING zoos from around the world. We love meeting zookeepers and, of course, their animal charges. 🐢🦅🦍🦓

That big claw belongs to the Utahraptor!

Perhaps unshockingly, Utahraptor fossils were first discovered in Utah in 1975. More surprising though, is that the Utahraptor was not in fact a raptor. Utahraptor are dromaeosaurs which is obvious from the distinctive, large sickle-shaped claw that grows on the second toe of their feet!

Congratulations to our winners this week!

Come take a behind-the-scenes tour!

For the past 16 years, The Dinosaur Company has been partnering with zoos, museums, and other educational organizations to host animatronic exhibits for the public. We work with themes of conservation and educated our audience about the prehistoric. We do what we do to inspire. Starting June 1st, 2019, we begin our journey to become a more community-inclusive company. Our partnerships have helped us become who we are today, and we want the opportunity to share our passion with you.

Our standard tour is available by appointment on Saturdays and Sundays. We host tours every hour for a group of up to 10 people. You can book yourself and/or your group online here: http://www.billingsproductions.com/book-facility-tours-events/
