Grave Secrets of Dinosaurs
Paleontologist Phillip Manning shares the exciting cold case of a 67-million-year-old dinosaur – one of the rarest specimens ever unearthed. Many of us have seen dinosaur bones and skeletons, maybe even dinosaur eggs… but what did those fearsome animals really look like in the flesh? Soft-tissue fossils give tantalizing clues about the appearance and physiology of the ancient animals.
Bone structure is just the beginning of our knowledge today. Drawing on new breakthroughs and cutting-edge techniques of analysis, Dr. Manning takes us on a thrilling, globe-spanning tour of dinosaur mummy finds – from the first such excavation in 1908 to a baby dinosaur unearthed in 1980, from a dino with a heart in South Dakota to titanosaur embryos in Argentina.
