Returning to the field to look for the rest of T. rex

The K–Pg boundary—a black layer of sediment visible in the hill just above the T. rex dig site—clearly delineates the end of the age of dinosaurs.

“The more specimens that we have, the more we get to understand about this top predator and this ecosystem that was the last of its kind in the world,” said Wilson.

The T. rex crew thinks they’ve found everything there is to find at the site, but work on these specimens is just beginning. Before they can be studied, rock and dirt must be removed, and the fossils must be preserved. 

The public can watch preparation of the magnificent T. rex skull LIVE at the Burke beginning August 12, 2017. More and more will be revealed each day, so come back often to see the progress!

All fieldwork was done with Bureau of Land Management (BLM) permits to research and collect on federal land.
