A New Day/A New DINOSAUR!
Today one of the students taking our Paleontological Field Methods course at NC State University went prospecting for the first time. As luck would have it, he found a new species of dinosaur… one of the nicest sites I’ve seen in the time I’ve been working the Mussentuchit. So far we’ve collected the lower jaw, parts of the backbone, and parts of the shoulder and arm just from the surface of the hill. The bones look to belong to a new species of plant-eating dinosaur. That brings the number of new dinosaurs from the Mussentuchit expeditions to four!
