Hunting Dinosaurs

Anne Schulp

We all know the giant fossils of dinosaurs, but ever wondered where and how these are found? Paleontologist Anne Schulp takes you to the excavation site and shows you ‘how it's done’, from finding the first bones to getting the whole skeleton to the surface. He dug up Trix, the 66 million old Tyrannosaurus rex that is on display in Naturalis Biodiversity Center. What have we discovered so far about Trix? What did she look like, and what did life look like during her time?

Anne Schulp is appointed as part-time professor on the chair of Vertebrate Paleontology in the Department of Earth Sciences. Anne obtained his PhD in 2006 at the VU Amsterdam on marine reptiles (mosasaurs) from the Maastricht Formation. He is currently (and will continue to be) a researcher at Naturalis Biodiversity Centre with a special interest in reptiles from the Age of Dinosaurs.

We put this programme together with uncertainty about the format, location and capacity. An update will follow on the 24th of August. Keep an eye on our website, social media, or sign up for our newsletter.
