We are three kids and our Mom who love dinosaurs. We like to read about them and learn about them. We will be exploring the internet to find cool dinosaur stuff and we will tell you about it here. We will tell you all about our adventures too!

Chat with Dr. Phil Currie

Thanks to the cool folks over at discoverychannel.ca for creating an opportunity to visit with Dr. Phil Currie at his current dig at Alberta's Dry Island Park. Along with many other dino enthusiasts, we got to ask Dr. Currie a question:

Hi Dr. Currie, What is the oldest (ancestral) tryannosaurid found so far and where was it found?

His Answer: Dear Dinokids (& mom). The oldest tyrannosaurids known are from China and come from two different places...
Guanlong is a late Jurassic crested form, while Dilong

is a feathered form that is about the size of a German shepherd. Phil - 07:07:26 9:34 pm ET

Thanks Dr. Currie!!
