The Cranbrook Institute of Science is hosting an exhibit of dinosaur fossils featuring the private collection of a father-and-son team.

“World of Dinosaurs; Land, Sea and Air” opens Friday in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills and runs through Jan. 2. It is anchored by the collection of Jack Hankla, a dentist from Danville, Ky., and his son, John.
A member preview is Thursday. Other specimens from the Institute of Science’s collection are a part of the display.

The exhibit includes more than 60 skeletal mounts, cast and restored from specimens representing 40 species. Dinosaur eggs, bones and fossilized insects are part of the display, which focuses on the Late Jurassic and Cretaceous time periods.

The exhibit was developed by the Institute of Science.
