Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Carpenter
Dr. Carpenter is the Director of the Utah State University Eastern Prehistoric Museum in Price, Utah, and has recently studied the most complete Acrocanthosaurus skeleton yet discovered. He used modern techniques to determine its biology and hot it may have lived. The rocks that encased the skeleton provided clues about the environment this large, theropod (meat-eating dinosaur) inhabited.

Dr. Carpenter has written the first book-length volume on this dinosaur: Acrocanthosaurus: Inside and Out, recently published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
