Terri and Todd visit an active dig site north of Baker, Montana. This amazing
site is host to an array of active digs, including Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus
Rex and Hadrosaurus sites. They observe the excavation teams hard at work and
later do some exploring for fossils on their own. Last but not least, no visit
to this area could be complete without Todd getting his hands on a Prairie
A personal note about this episode.....
Three out of the past 4 years, we have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit active dinosaur excavation sites. It is truly the experience of a lifetime. We couldn't have picked a nicer day to film, the weather was superb! Typically these sites are hot and windy, creating a lot of dust and very difficult filming conditions. On top of that, these sites were very accessible compared to most. We were worried we wouldn't get enough unique content to make this episode different from the 2 previous features we have done on dino digs....but it seems there is much to learn about dinosaurs. We hope you enjoy stepping back in time with us.

Behind the scenes......
Ok ...so this doesn't have anything to do with dinosaurs but we thought you might enjoy it. When we go on digs, we stay with Todd's folks, who live in Harding County, SD, as it's close to Marmarth, ND, the home base in which we start all our digs.
Todd was making himself useful and helping his mom cut cucumbers. We decided sharing this may get him brownie points, and he could use all of those he can get!The good news is he showered...the bad news is that he forgot to comb his hair, which is never a good idea with Terri and her camera nearby!
After the cucumbers were all cut......it was time to head out on our journey.....we were Montana bound....
Dinosaurs were huuuuuge!! Check out the size of this T-Rex toe bone!
It would be interesting to see how Todd's head size compared to that of a T-Rex.
