For the first time in human history a dinosaur fossil is presenting us with the opportunity to see what a living dinosaur looked like. In 2001 a field research team unearthed the world’s most complete dinosaur fossil, a Brachylophosaurus nicknamed Leonardo. This incredible dinosaur has all of its skin covering its body, missing only a bit on the head and tail. Leonardo has more soft tissue preserved than any other dinosaur fossil, and may even have some of its internal organs. The subject of intensive scientific study, the world is about to discover more about dinosaurs than ever before! More information can be found at www.dinosaurmummy.org, along with the story of his discovery.
