Fossil hunting with the Brain Scoop

We’re big fans of Emily Graslie’s natural history video series The Brain Scoop. The latest episode goes right to the source of the museum specimens that usually take center stage—a fossil hunting expedition.

Watch the whole thing, and you’ll learn some nifty paleontology jargon, like:

“It’s called the 18-inch layer.”

“Is it because it’s 18 inches?”

“Yeah.”
