Dinosaur paleontologist Matthew Carrano not only works with real dinosaur bones every day, but he contributes to the centuries-old process of furthering scientific understanding. To Carrano, it’s always exciting to uncover a new dinosaur fossil and be the first person in the history of the universe to see and touch it.
