Paleontologist Robert McCord and AZMNH in the news

East Valley Tribune:  Arizona Paleontology

Ever wondered what kinds of dinosaurs were roaming Arizona? Our state was a very different landscape 65 million years ago. Local paleontologist, Robert McCord of the Arizona Museum of Natural History, sat down with GetOut to share what it's like to dig up dinosaurs in Arizona. And he answers the burning question: Will we ever see a real Jurassic Park one day? Hint - it's not as simple as Spielberg makes it look!


Congrats to Dr. Bob for a great job in his interview with CH 12’s Stacia Naquin, which aired on NBC this morning at 5:45 a.m. and 6:45 a.m.
