Maastricht – From Monday till 22 July, in the Natuurhistorisch Museum (NHM) in Maastricht, people will be able to see every day how a fossil giant marine turtle will be extracted from a limestone rock, 66 million years old.
In the museum, a so called ‘PadLab’ was made, giving visitors the chance to see the extraction work from a close distance.
This turtle is from the late Cretaceous.
