Hadrosaurs Make The News! "Absolutely Gobsmacking!"

Exciting stuff going on in the world of paleontology! Apparently some paleontologists digging in North Dakota on a National Geographic funded project have found what appears to be the fossilized skin of a hadrosaur that's believed to have existed some 66 million years ago. This is incredibly exciting seeing as how this is an incredibly rare find that could yield a vast amount of information about this particular dinosaur as well as about dinosaurs in general. I, unfortunately, am not a paleontologist (although if I ever learn to love science, this would definitely be my cup of tea.) However, i'll leave it to the experts to explain more about this incredible find. Check out the following stories (and a few related stories underneath):
