Bob Lisaius, the genius behind DinoMan, had all of the Scouts enraptured as he answered questions like, "How do we know dinosaurs were here? What is a fossil? How are they made?"

The children and their parents were thoroughly entertained by DinoMan's fun and informative program.  DinoMan has garnered a "Best Bet" from the LA Times, been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, and appeared at Boston's First Night (the largest family celebration in the country) seven times.  DinoMan is based out of Vermont, and travels with his amazing life-sized friends in a Prius. Tiger Cub Aidan Daly said, "DinoMan was awesome and funny."
