An excavation of a rare dinosaur fossil goes horribly wrong. It?s left to paleo technicians to try and salvage what they can.
It's called Borealopelta, a recently discovered, 110-million-year-old dinosaur that's so well preserved, it looks like it could've been walking the Earth just last month. Now, paleontologists at Canada's Royal Tyrrell Museum have taken on the roles of forensic detectives to determine where it came from, how it died, and why this land-based creature wound up in an area that was once an inland sea. Join the investigation as we paint a picture of the dinosaur's world and the environmental and predatory foes that may have ended its life.
