Video 253: Secretos del esqueleto de un Stegosaurus | Natural History Museum

Follow the arrival of the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeleton and its first few months behind the scenes at the Museum as it underwent rigorous scientific examination. The unprecedented specimen arrived at the Museum in late 2013, but before it was put on public display our dinosaur researchers wanted to get their hands on it.

Prof Paul Barrett and Dr Charlotte Brassey took incredibly detailed measurements of the skeleton with laser scans, CT scans and 360 degree photography. By building 3D models and analysing all the data they collected, they hope to be able to answer some of the big questions about the anatomy and life of Stegosaurus.
