What a Dromaeosaur

Dinosaurs exhibits are unique in that they stay cool as you get older. Don't lie: The sight of a T. Rex's teeth still gives you those "What if it gets me?!" shivers. Stuff both scary and educational is in store at "Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries" at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Once you view the fossils, you can see the super-high-tech methods scientists used to find them. The exhibit's highlight is the fossil cast of a razor-clawed dromaeosaur complete with feathers, the first specimen to be found with its covering intact. Factor in the museum's already extensive Paleontology Hall, and you should have enough nightmare -- or Jurassic Park sequel -- fodder for a while.
