Paleontologists have been studying nodosaurs since the 1830s, but nobody had ever found a specimen like Borealopelta before. The key to its exceptional preservation was where it ended up after it died and how it got there.
Thanks to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology for providing us with images for this episode. tyrrellmuseum.com/
And thanks as always to Ceri Thomas for the excellent Borealopelta illustrations! alphynix.tumblr.com/
And thanks to paleontologists Caleb Brown and Donald Henderson of the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Alberta, and Jakob Vinther of the University of Bristol for their help with this episode.

Should've named it after the man that discovered it... not the guy who cleaned it... you 'elitist' snobs...
Who gave Denosur a camera?
The person who discovered it was a quarry worker who came across it by accident, the person who prepared it spent more than 7000 hours over the span of six years doing so. Mark Mitchell was more deserving of the species name imo.

Why do you have modern sounding bird song in the forest pictures? Avians weren't modern yet 🤔
Who gave Denosur a camera?
It's largely unknown what Albian avians would have sounded like but, we do have some evidence from an anserimorph in the Maastrichtian that suggests that it sounded like its modern counterparts at least. It's not impossible than avians in the Mesozoic may have been producing such songs but, they'd likely be rather different to those from modern perching birds as they did not evolve until the early Cenozoic. It's hard to know.

anyone else find it really wild when they actually deepen the thought of huge reptiles roaming the continents millions of years ago? We all know dinos were a thing but if you actually think about the fact that they ACTUALLY existed its a really really cool thought.

The Royal Tyrell Museum is pretty amazing. You will need to spend a couple days there to really appreciate it. If you have extremely young children, I suggest one parent or the Grandparents switch off each afternoon with the activities you can do outside the museum, like go to the dig sites - this will both ware you kids out massively - they will sleep immediately - and the other set will get to truly appreciate spending extra time looking at their massive collection of exhibits. Just don’t expect to purchase any real fossils there. They don’t sell a single trilobite. There are a few shops in town that have some, often the best are the smallest. Also you won’t see the town in the distance. It feels as though you’re never going to get there. Then the road drops into a canyon in the badlands and BOOM! You’re in Drumheller.

A friend of mine was working on this crew in Ft. Mac, Alberta when this fossil was found. He sent me pics when they found it. I still have a few of them. It was pretty exciting. A few years later, my wife and I went to Drumheller, (we go every so often, as we live in AB) of course we visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum every time. It was really something to see it there, knowing that our friend had been part of the crew that found it. Drumheller is one of the richest deposits of dinosaur fossils in the world, and their 2 museums are full of world class specimens. I feel lucky to live so close to it, and visit it every few years.

VinzRex پیش 3 ماه
I am no paleontologist and this might be a stupid question, but could the dinosaur also have eaten the charcoal to help with its digestion process? After all, Coal products are used regularly today to help with digestion problems.
Uhlbelk پیش 3 ماه
possibly, plants are difficult things to eat being full of chemical deterrents. Maybe their favorite ferns had a toxin that they could mitigate the effects by eating charcoal.

Do you think that due to its armor it prevented sharks from scavenging it? Perhaps floating on its back presented to much of a challenge to sharks or other sea predators.

"Bloat and Float Propulsion", can explain how far it floated from the shore. The expulsion of gas from the dinocloaca could have extended the range by 15%.

Uhlbelk پیش 3 ماه
Kinda how geology works, stuff on land gets worn away by rain down rivers into the ocean where it settles in layers on the ocean floor. Sometimes it can happen in lakes, occasionally things can be buried under lava, but to truly fossilize it has to be buried under ever increasing sediment.

this animal was caught in a flash flood, drowned, and washed out to float and then sink.
Uhlbelk پیش 3 ماه
probably not, if it died in a flood it wouldn't have time to decompose and get the gas necessary to keep it buoyant. If it sank, then bloated and popped back up, it might not have enough momentum to get washed out that far. I'm guessing it will probably remain a mystery.
