If you’ve been reading the blog, you’re up to speed on our Paleontology Department’s recent exploits in Montana. They were there to prospect around the site where Leonardo – the famous mummified dinosaur that will go on world premiere display at HMNS this fall – was discovered. And, they found several new sites, helped set up Malta’s newest dinosaur museum – where Leonardo will be on display after his visit to Houston.

Today, National Geographic posted a very cool story about Leonardo and our upcoming exhibit – it includes footage of the Montana expedition as well as interviews with Dr. Bakker and HMNS President Joel A. Bartsch. Check it out here – and let us know what you think!
