The curator of paleontology at Montana's Museum of the Rockies describes the discovery of a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil and its excavation, and explains its scientific importance. So far, only ten skeletons that are more than 30% complete have been found; this one (spotted in 1988 by a young woman hiking with her family) was the first to be nearly complete.

Don Lessem, John R. Horner. In the summer of 1990, the first nearly complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever found was excavated in the Montana badlands under the supervision of one of the world's leading dinosaur paleontologists, Dr. John Horner. That same year a second, even more complete, skeleton was found in South Dakota. Together these skeletons are yielding surprising new insights into the most famous of the dinosaurs

Although digging up remains of a T. rex in the area is not an uncommon feat, what makes this find unique is the quality of the fossil . rex in the area is not an uncommon feat, what makes this find unique is the quality of the fossil, and the age of the dinosaur in question. Is it really a young T. rex, which lived during the last 2 million years of the Cretaceous period, from about 67 million to 65 million years ago. Or could it be another example of the controversial-and potentially bogus-Nannotyranus (a small genus of the tyrannosaurid family first catalogued in 1946)? With a specimen this complete, perhaps the answers will soon be revealed. VIDEO: Dinosaurs: Known as the king of the tyrant lizards, T-Rex was one of the largest carnivores of all time.

Jack Horner is one of the most important (or maybe THE most important) living paleontologists. This book documents in clear language his excavation of one of the most complete T. rex skeletons ever found. Children (and adults) will learn the process of excavation along with some of the key concepts in paleontology. Jack Horner never talks down to his audience, and his excitement and passion for what he does is contagious.

This book energized my then seven year-old son and brought him to a deeper, more scientific understanding of dinosaurs and paleontology.

Reading this book, you feel like a real paleontologist at a dig. This is my idea of what non-fiction for children could be at its best, nothing cute or overly simplified, but a story giving information in a scientific perspective that was so compelling that now my five year old daughter wants to be a paleontoligist when she grows up, and John Horner is her hero.

excellent pictures and fantastic description of how excavating and preservation is done. We wanted to go out and look for dinosaur bones right away.
