Discover flooding remains of dinosaurs in MD

"In those days, rivers would overflow their banks, and dump things that float in the flow channel to give up, which includes dead animals, and in that time including the dinosaurs," says Dr. Peter Kranz, who runs a dinosaur paleontologist at Laurel Park.

The bone fragment is the size of a large grapefruit and not very visible to the untrained eye. Kranz said he was washed to the surface by wind and rain of Hurricane and Tropical Storm Irene Lee.

"I found hundreds of pieces of bone over the years here, so it's not like the first time, but it is always exciting," said volunteer Dave Hacker, who discovered the find.

The fragment of fossilized bones sent to the Smithsonian Institution for examination and identification.
