Which dino bone did you find?

After uncovering the dinosaur evidence, match the bones, make a dino model, document your model and reveal your dino discovery. After you finish working on your dinosaur discovery, visit our scientists and watch them working on real fossils. What part of a dinosaur have they discovered?
