All About Skulls at County Museum

Curator of Geology J. Chris Sagebiel will present a special lecture, “Skulls,” on Sunday, October 15 at 2:00 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands. The program is free with museum admission.

From pirate flags to "Hamlet," few things fascinate as instantly as a skull. The skull is a multi-purpose tool—it houses all five senses. Animals use the skull to combat rivals, capture food, dig through the soil, echolocate, and attract mates. Sagebiel will show the vast array of skulls among the vertebrates, from the flexible, expandable skull of the snake to the thick skulls of the big horn sheep.

The talk will focus on the evolution of the skull from the first fish to modern birds, mammals, and reptiles. This lecture will feature 3-D views inside the skulls of dinosaurs and hands-on time with skulls from the usual to the unusual.

The San Bernardino County Museum is at the California Street exit from Interstate 10 in Redlands. The museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays and holiday Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $6 (adult), $5 (student or senior), and $4 (child aged 5 to 12). Children under five and Museum Association members are admitted free. Parking is free. For more information, visit
