Dr. Kranz Cartoon 


Thanks for taking the time to visit my

Humble Homepage

   Since you got this far on your quest for knowledge, I have to assume that we share a common interest. Yes you guessed it; we are talking about those creatures that inhabited this planet long time ago and are here no more, in another words, extinct. No not the hippies but Dinosaurs. 

   And now; seriously; I have created this page to take you on an exploration--an exploration resulting from my years of scientific research on the dinosaurs who lived in this area we now call "Maryland".   You can also see my work on articles published over the years

   Dr. Peter M. Kranz is a paleontologist; He is an authority on Maryland's Dinosaurs. He also will be grateful for any help or donation for the Dinosaur fund   and any suggestions that may help to improve this home page.
