Joe’s Bones

The skeleton of “Joe” was remarkably preserved, revealing the remains of a baby plant-eating dinosaur called Parasaurolophus. On these pages, you can learn more about the skull and skeleton, as well as the microscopic anatomy of the bones, or explore the skin and beak impressions found with “Joe”. Medical CT scanning technology allows us to look inside the skull of “Joe”, and bring 3D digital models to your own computer desktop!
