Pittsburgh has its own Jurassic Park at 4400 Forbes Avenue called the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Within its building it has an exhibit "Dinosaurs in Their Time". This Jurassic Park is not like what the movie Jurassic Park portrays.The movie portrays living dinosaurs that were cloned from mosquitoes that were encased in amber. In the movie the scientists cloned dinosaurs from the blood they extracted from the mosquitoes. These dinosaurs break loose and wreak havoc in the Park.
Dinosaurs in the Their Time showcases dinosaurs as living animals. When people look at the exhibits, they can visualize what the dinosaurs were doing and what will happen next. One exhibit has an adult Apatosaurus with baby. The adult Apatosaurus (Apatosaurus louisae) has her tail poised to strike an attacking Allosaurus (Allosaurus fragilis). Another exhibit has two Tyrannosaurs fighting over a Edmontosaurus carcass.
