Episode 350 is all about Trachodon, Anatosaurus, and many other hadrosaurs which have been lumped and split over the years.
We also interview Albert Prieto-Marquez, a PhD researcher at the Catalan Institute of Paleontology (also on facebook). We’re talking to him today because he’s one of the world’s leading experts on hadrosaurs. You can also check out some of his work at the Museu Conca Dellà (on facebook or twitter).
