The Thermopolis Archaeopteryx is one of the finest examples of this species ever discovered. And, lucky us! Paleontologist Pete Larson stopped by to tell us what makes this fossil so special, and fill us in on his new research on it – see what he had to say in the video below.

We’re talking dino-bird with Pete Larson, tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. Central. Check out our previous blog post for details on how you can participate!

Or, check out the Thermopolis Archaeopteryx for yourself! Visit Archaeopteryx: Icon of Evolution at HMNS through Sept. 6, 2010.
