Hunting Dinosaurs with Dr. Robert Bakker

Sunday, August 15, 2010

In this video, hunt dinosaurs with famed paleontologist and HMNS curator of paleontology Dr. Robert Bakker. The video was shot in May 2008 on the ranch in Montana where Leonardo, the mummified dinosaur on display in Dinosaur Mummy CSI: Cretaceous Science Investigation through Jan. 11, 2009, was found. Dr. Bakker tells us how a fossil like Leonardo was made, then takes us through the process of fossil hunting - from how to train your eye to find the smallest fragments to what to do once you've got a good layer of fossils going.

Dr. Bakker often posts his thoughts on paleontology to the HMNS blog, BEYONDbones:
