2016 EDU: BIZ: The Lost World of Kayaker Magic

The Lost World of Kayaker Magic
You can own your own lost world with the dinosaurs you can buy from Kayaker Magic. T. rex and others prowl this Lost World.  Are they all correctly placed from an ecological standpoint?  Could you use a lost world like this in a class on ecology?   On paleontology?  On education?
