Dr. BC's Curtice papers

Me excavating a Diplodocus sacral (hip) complex.  Shortly after this photo was taken I realized I had not only discovered the hip but also a large section of the tail, nearly the entire hind limb, and a number of the back bones.  I spent two field seasons excavating this specimen and nearly 2 years preparing it for study.  It is available housed in the collections of the Brigham Young University Museum of Paleontology in Provo, Utah.


I study sauropod dinosaurs, the longest, tallest, and heaviest creatures that ever walked the earth.  Below are selected academic papers as well in some popular literature I was mentioned in.
