Alton Wade and his fellow explorers from Texas Tech, such as Vestal "Pappy" Yeats, will continue through Dec. 20. It takes up three galleries at the museum but didn't require the removal of the museum's dinosaurs - the exhibitors simply built a massive display above and around their remains with scenic painting by artist John Thomasson.

It makes the most sense for Disney to highlight a Clooney pic - he appeals to both men and women, as does the Super Bowl - and it's his first starring tentpole role since 2007's Ocean's Thirteen .

In fact, Caldwell stated that those reptiles probably looked remarkably similar to modern snakes, although Titanoboa, a species of marine snake that lived in areas as diverse as what is now Argentina and Lebanon some 90 million years ago, still had rear limbs.
