In 2013, NC scientists discovered dinosaur fossils in Utah. Find out more about these ancient bones with this introductory lesson plan.
The more I learned about the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences' discovery of the mystery dinosaur in Utah, the more amazed I became that the fossils were discovered at all.
That’s because while it is easy to find the full femur bone of a creature that lived 98 million years ago, it’s not that simple to spot a piece of a bone laying on the rocky ground.
There are times some folks might think I grew up in the age of the dinosaurs, although a check of my driver's license and other official paperwork continues to prove I am not quite that old.
Nevertheless, I am here to say I miss Brontosaurus.
Actually, I called him Bronto. He was a green sauropod dinosaur with a long neck and tail. I played with him when I was little and will tell anyone who will listen that Bronto was very cool.
But then science came along.
