In Surrey, England, a paleontologist named Dr. David Norman identified a fossilized dinosaur brain that was found in 2004. The fossil was originally found by a fossil hunter by the name of Jamie Hiscocks.
The fossil is 133 million years old. It came from the Iguanodon, which lived during the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods. The size of the fossil is small enough that it can fit in someone’s hand.
It took a long time to prove that the fossil came from a dinosaur’s brain, but the wrinkles, tubes and folds helped them with the process. In the past, it was common to pass membranes as something that only needed to be cleaned. Now, researchers can take the time to really analyze fossils and possibly make more big discoveries.
