A Golden Age of Dinosaur Discoveries

Are we in a dinosaur renaissance? Each summer NC State University paleontologist and Head of Paleontology at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences Dr. Lindsay Zanno and her students head out on remote expedition and return triumphant, bearing the remains of undescribed species of dinosaurs and other ancient vertebrates. Their summer exploits teach us that before paleontologists can apply the newest tools and techniques to study ancient life, they must first do the backbreaking labor of finding and excavating their fragile remains. Dr. Zanno shares an update on their summer 2019 finds.
