"Dino Hunter" in May Discover Magazine



There is a long and interesting article on Phil Currie in this month's
Discover.  "Dino Hunter" by Josh Fischman follows Dr. Currie on an
expedition in Alberta's badlands to find an old Barnum Brown dig site
which contained the bones of (possibly) juvenile tyrannosaurs.   The
article also addresses theories on pack hunting by _Albertosaurus_ and
"Tyrannosaur Feathers." 

Why paleontologists need to be masters of a variety of disciplines, not 
the least of which is hiking, is made clear in the article.  Having hiked
with Dr. Currie, who never seemed to tire and _never_ wore a hat, it
was hard to believe that heat or dehydration could ever affect him.
