Nodosaurs are pretty amazing when you find them, period, but to find a dinosaur with its skin and innards all intact is a very rare and special event. As researchers point out, it's not just a skeleton of a dinosaur, but the actual way it would have looked if you had met it while it was alive. We are forced to speculate when it comes to a lot of dino information but evidence like this helps paint a clearer picture.
This nodosaur may be the best preserved dinosaur found so far. It's so well preserved that people are calling it a mummy rather than a fossil, which is really more accurate. By studying this creature's skin and insides we can build better theories about what actual dinosaurs were like.
