Myrtle Beach, SC (January 5, 2011) – We’ve all read news reports of paleontologists discovering the remains of ancient man. But until now, those digs were in the plains of South Dakota, the ravines of Olduvai Gorge, or caves beneath Egypt. Now, thanks to a Cave Man Excavation kit from Wild Creations, eight-year old Calvin Cramer (“Caveman Cal” to his friends) of White Plains, NY, a Homo Neaderthalensis was discovered in his bedroom. When asked about this incredible discovery by his father, Calvin said he was looking forward to excavating sea monsters in the bathtub next.
If you want to become a real paleontologist, then you need to study mineralogy, sedimentary petrology, stratigraphy/sedimentation, invertebrate paleontology, ecology, invertebrate and vertebrate zoology, evolutionary biology and genetics. Unfortunately for budding dino-hunters, most elementary schools don’t offer those courses. So to get the right tools for those kids, visit Wild Creations Kids University of Ancient Archeology in Booth 5367 at the 2011 American International Toy Fair.
