Discover what it takes to be a dinosaur hunter in
this program by the Museum’s Preparator, Lee Hall. He has a degree in
paleontology from Montana State University and began his career working in the

and excavating dinosaur and other vertebrate specimens. Mr. Hall’s field
experience includes excavation of Troodon
nests from Egg Mountain, Montana, teeth of Carcharocles
