Watch as extinct creatures come to life! Our realistic Dinosaur and Saber-toothed Cat large-scale puppets capture the imaginations of audiences in performances each week. Thanks to the expertise of NHMLA's and the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum scientists and puppeteers, you can experience how these prehistoric animals lived. Our team of performance artists will guide you back in time to better understand these extinct animal's anatomy, possible behavior and movement.
