Dippy on Tour

L2 and U1 had a fantastic trip to the Great North Museum (Hancock) yesterday to see Dippy the Diplodocus. 

Dippy is on tour around the country - normally at the famous Natural History Museum in London.

Unveiled to the British public in 1905, Dippy was cast from the type specimen found in America. The full skeleton is 21.3 metres long, 4.3 metres wide and 4.25 metres high. 

Alex 'Dippy had 72 bones just in his tail, I couldn't believe how big he is'!

Anna 'I really loved seeing him, to see him right in front of me, he was amazing, I hope to go and see him again'

Zara 'His toes were huge, I suppose he needs them to steady himself, being that big'

Isabelle 'His teeth were huge, like really really sharp!'

Dippy is in Newcastle until 6th October, its well worth the visit!
