Bizarre Dino

Around the world, scientists are constantly in search of dinosaurs. Real ones disappeared about 65 million years ago, but dinosaurs left behind a lot for humans to study, like eggs, bones, and entire bodies. This month on the National Geographic Channel, you can find out about two of the most important dinosaur discoveries in history in Bizarre Dino.

The dinosaur remains that paleontologists, scientists who study ancient life, find are usually nothing more than a single skeleton or a few parts of one. In the Junggar Basin of western China, though, researchers have uncovered a lot more than that. A team of dinosaur hunters has found dozens of remains from almost forty different species of dinosaur in a small area, many of which have never been seen before. Scientists are calling it the "Pit of Death." Watch as scientists uncover remains, analyze them in high-tech labs, and learn how this remarkable area came into existence in Dino Death Trap.

Then, you can take a look at Leonardo, a dinosaur that died in Montana 77 million years ago. Unlike other dinosaur remains, Leonardo's body was preserved by natural events after he died and was found with skin, muscle, and organs mostly intact. Even the contents of his last meal were still in his stomach. Previously, scientists had to guess what dinosaurs looked like both inside and out from clues in their bones. Leonardo offers scientists an unprecedented opportunity to see how dinosaurs really appeared and functioned. Now, you get to observe as scientists carefully examine Leonardo and get their first glimpses at many parts of an actual dinosaur body in Dino Autopsy.

For scientists and dinosaur fans, there has never been a more exciting time. Advanced technology and some lucky discoveries are allowing researchers to learn fascinating new things about dinosaurs. Tune in to see the field of dinosaur research take a huge leap forward on the National Geographic Channel's Bizarre Dino.
