Drexel Snapshot: Dreadnoughtus Departure

Drexel News Blog

The world said hello to Dreadnoughtus schrani for the first time just a little over three months ago, but soon it will be time for the Drexel scientists and students involved in studying this extraordinary dinosaur to say farewell.

Kenneth Lacovara, PhD, the Drexel professor behind the dinosaur discovery, has been hard at work with students in his lab over the last few weeks building and packing custom crates with 16 tons of mineralized bones. Above, a time-lapse video shows the process inside the lab. The dinosaur will be shipped back to its permanent home in Argentina soon.

For more on the process of packing and shipping Dreadnoughtus, check out Carolyn Beeler’s report for WHYY’s “The Pulse.”
