Dale Treadwell GONDWANALAND RTE Children’s Television favourite ‘Nature Guy’ Dale Treadwell brings his GONDWANALAND Presentation to the BT Arena Stage Best know for his quirky take on ‘Life in Your Backgarden’ which he regularly brings to schools throughout Ireland and the Naturally Wild Play garden from the 2007 Bloom Garden Festival, Dale intends to take us back on an audio visual adventure to his own childhood passion the search for the Living Fossils of Gondwana the Wollemi Pine Dinosaur tree from Eastern Australia only discovered in 1994 and previously thought extinct.

The BT Arena Stage will be transformed into a Jurassic Rainforest and no Jurassic Display would be complete without Deinonychus antirropus (‘terrible claw’) our 3m long 1.5 m tall dinosaur Velociraptor might have been fearsome but they were only about the size of a large turkey and T-Rex was quite a monster but he wasn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the box. Deinonychus – now he had the highest EQ of all the dinosaurs (intelligence as measured by it’s relative brain to body weight). It probably ate just about anything it could slash or tear apart. When hunting in packs Deinonychus could probably kill any prey it desired. Visitors and Exhibitors to this years Young Scientist BEWARE!!! Other topics Dale will explore are Polar Dinosaurs and the Larks Quarry Dinosaur Stampede site of Western Queensland. for further information http://www.naturallywild,ie
