What I’ve learned... working as a palaeontologist

Steve Brusatte is a palaeontologist at the University of Edinburgh, a role that sees him travel all over the world in search of dinosaur remains

My favourite museum is one most wouldn’t know: the Burpee Museum of Natural Hi story. It’s in Rockford, Illinois, near where grewup and, around the time was becoming interested in dinosaurs, it acquired the best skeleton of a ‘teenage’T. rex ever found. It’s beautiful: as a big as a Jeep, with long, skinny legs, and less scary teeth than the bus-sized adults.

Steve Brusatte’s The Rise and Fall ofthe Dinosaurs is out now in paperback (£9.99, Picador).
