Omg, they found a dinosaur mummy, complete with skin/armour. "the preservation was so good that researchers were able to tell the dinosaur’s skin color by using mass spectrometry techniques to detect the actual pigments. "

@rixx TIL: Some dinosaurs had a culture of mummifying their loved ones. *scnr*

@telegnom Relatable because I'm often tempted to mummify my loved ones.

@rixx that museum is amazing and highly worth the trip if you end up near Calgary.

@phessler @rixx if you want to see a dinosaur mummy in germany, Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt has one:

(it has less skin than the one you posted though) Second-grade me is both thrilled and disappointed (Because I loved to color in dinos in colorful spots because we didn't know)

@rixx i want to boop its snoot. i want to give it little kisses.

@rixx Naja gut, aber dann ranted #truckfonalddump am Ende auch noch hier rum...
