We host think + drink / science from 7 to 9pm on the second Wednesday of each month. The program opens as the day’s expert begins the evening with a presentation then we open the floor for discussion during this interactive webinar on Zoom.

“Gigantic Crocodylians, Deinosuchus Species: Top Predators Around the Late Cretaceous Coasts of North America”

Fossils of 12-meter Deinosuchus species (sometimes referred to as terror crocodiles!) have been reported since 1856, but only in the past two decades have we been able to accurately reconstruct their entire skulls and most of the skeletons. Join us while Dr. David Schwimmer, Professor of Geology, Columbus State University, highlights these fascinating top predators from the Late Cretaceous.

think + drink/science is sponsored by WUSF, a corporate partner of The Bishop.
