For a geeky break from all typical sugary holiday TV fare this month, sit with your geeklings and watch Dino Autopsy on the National Geographic Channel, this Sunday at 10 pm eastern.
The show comes on the heels of many news articles this week about the mummified/fossilized remains of a nearly complete hadrosaur carcass. (The Washington Post has the best slideshow of photos.) The fossilized mummy is already revising the conventional thinking of how these beasties – quite common among the late Cretaceous marshes and woodlands, particularly in North America – looked and moved. Did you know that hadrosaurus is the official State Dinosaur of New Jersey? Now you do.
