Welcome to Dinodave Paleo Adventures!

 

 Whether it's hunting ammonites in a prehistoric sea, walking through an enchanted petrified forest or discovering dinosaurs of the late cretaceous such as the T Rex and Triceratops,  Dinodave will  make you feel like you just stepped out of a time machine.  It will feel as if you have visited another world in the enchanting badlands of Makoshika State Park, Montana and around the world. We are here to have FUN and travel back in time!

Dave was once a volunteer Paleoranger for Makoshika State Park and was a correspondent for the Museum of the Rockies and other museums. The Museum of the Rockies just completed excavation of a triceratops Dave found in 2015.  Now Dave has found a love sharing his passion for paleontology through his Dinodave videos and educating the public with firsthand experience of finding a dinosaur. He continues to do correspondent work for several museums.

 Join me as I document my quest and journey to find amazing fossils and incredible adventures!

About

Dinodave has grown up with dinosaurs in his backyard.  As a teenager, he was tutored by resident paleontologist Diane Gabriel. Dave has then went onto Montana State University with a degree in biology.  His appreciation for Montana State was being able to work at the Museum of the Rockies as a preparator and to study under Jack Horner. One of his biggest paleontology thrills has been to go to Mongolia with Jack Horner a few years ago to help dig Psitacosaurus.
