CALEDONIA, MI-The Non-Destructive Testing Group recently X-rayed a fossilized dinosaur mummy with the Kodak Industrex ACR 2000i X-Ray machine. The full story of this unprecedented find was chronicled in “Secrets of the Dinosaur Mummy,” premiering September 14, on the Discovery Channel.
Leonardo, who went on display September 19 at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, is a three-year-old male Brachylophosaurus Canadensis, discovered in the summer of 2000 in Malta, MT. What makes Leonard so special is that he is the largest and best-preserved dinosaur fossil ever discovered-his body actually mummified, meaning that 90% of his soft tissue is preserved, including skin, muscle, nails and beak.
