Imagine the thrill of discovering something brand-new about a creature that lived millions of years ago. Ever since the first dinosaur fossil was identified almost 200 years ago, people have wondered how these fascinating animals lived, moved and behaved. At first, dinosaur hunters used only such tools as a keen eye, shovels and compasses.
Today, scientists also rely on everything from satellite technology to scanning electron microscopes. Prepare to take a journey of discovery into the exciting world of modern paleontology, where new discoveries, new technology and new ideas are helping today's scientists piece together what these living, breathing dinosaurs were really like.
