FAQ on the Dinosaur Project

While we emphasise native species for modern living things, the same cannot be argued for ancient (and extinct) animals like dinosaurs that dominated the planet well before the existence of humanity. In comparison, the earliest human fossil found was dated to only 0.2 million years ago. To understand the ‘deep’ history of the island, and for Singaporeans to appreciate how evolution works, it is almost inevitable that a dinosaur exhibit should be included in the new museum. That been said, really old fossils have been found in Singapore in the past but they are mainly bivalves (shells) that date to the Triassic period (even older than the dinosaurs!). These are small and very rare. Regrettably, the museum does not hold any of these fossils that were excavated from Singapore in its collection.
