IamA - We are Paleontologists Dr. Robert Bakker and Matthew Mossbrucker, Featured In National Geographic Channel's "Dino Death Match" and "T.rex Autopsy." Ask Us Anything!!
**Hi, I’m Robert T. Bakker, author of The Dinosaur Heresies, Raptor Red and The Big Golden Book of Dinosaurs, and Curator of Paleontology at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I also contribute to the Beyond Bones Blog. I'm featured in a National Geographic T.V. documentary about the Montana's Dueling Dinosaurs called "Dino Death Match."
Hi, I’m Matthew T. Mossbrucker, Director and Curator of the Morrison Natural History Museum, and discoverer of the first baby Stegosaurus fossils. I’ve worked on many other Jurassic fossils, from Apatosaurus to species never seen before. I'm in a little Nat Geo T.V. special called "T. rex Autopsy," a tale of a rubber dinosaur's encounter with a film crew.
Both specials are airing the week of June 7 on National Geographic Channels worldwide. Both feature tyrannosaurs in all their glory. Let's talk dinosaurs, Jurassic World, dissection, paleontology, pop culture, and upcoming projects. Ask us anything!**:
Here's the proof we are really ourselves:
UPDATE: Hey Redditors, Matt is being pulled away from the computer to load up his pickup with fossils for an outreach at the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater. He'll keep answering your questions, so keep them coming!
UPDATE 2 Matt here - Doc Bakker is spent for the night, but he'll be back to answer more questions. I'm sitting in a movie theater lobby, slowly answering your questions while folks chat with me about dinosaurs. We'll keep providing your with sagacious and sarcastic answers throughout the weekend.
