Dinosaur fossil with preserved skin
|July 7, 2017||Posted by News under Evolution|
From Fritz Burnett at National Geographic:
I’ll never forget this nodosaur fossil discovery for a few reasons. To start, it’s one of the best preserved armored dinosaur fossils ever found. I have to admit that seeing bones alone has never fully satisfied my curiosity about the creatures that walked the earth millions of years ago. However, seeing a fossilized foot, scales, and even a bit of skin is amazing. It gives a more complex picture of how this type of dinosaur once looked and lived. More.
