    When paleontologists uncover a dinosaur they usually only find part of the animal, but when we walk through a museum we see exhibits that paint a full picture – so how do they fill in all those blank spaces? In the early 1900’s artists used to hand carve the pieces, but we’ve come a long way in the past century  – both technologically and scientifically.

    Now, we’re living in what some call a “golden age” for paleontology. Researchers are uncovering nearly one new species of dinosaur a week – making building exhibits easier and more efficient.

    Norell’s newest exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History called T.Rex: The ultimate predator is open through August 9th 2020:

    Anyone else feel less confident in dinosaurs after this video? I don’t like any of it. If it’s fact based then just show us what was found, you don’t need the exhibit to tell a story. That’s what movies are for.

    So it's safe to assume that some dinosaurs had pants and a pair of Jordan's that disintegrated over time....

    Why are these fossils always found incomplete? without ribs, the tip of the tail etc. It could be some tail of other species, Or the head fossil is just belongs to cattle family animals.
    Suddenly these fossils emerged in early 1900s?
