A Brand New Species

Fri, Feb 26 12:00 P.M. NHPBS      

The Conductor and the kids are out digging in a favorite fossil spot, out past the Big Pond. Buddy turns up something that the Conductor doesn't recognize. It's an excellent fossil - he guesses that they may have discovered a whole new Jurassic species! They all carefully finish digging out the beautifully intact theropod raptor skeleton and bring it to Troodon Town, where they can examine it at the Science labs at Troodon Academy. The experts agree: The Conductor and the kids have discovered a new Jurassic dinosaur! They nickname it "Buddysaurus." Now the Conductor must give a presentation to all the assembled Academy about this new Dracoraptor discovery. Used to being the authority and a kind of hilarious know-it-all, the Conductor is for once super-nervous and tongue-tied. The kids help him figure out how to properly and scientifically present his information and get over his nerves. Buddy leads them, and the kids even improvise a song about the new discovery, "A Brand-New Species!" It's a hit! / Buddy gets the idea to travel to the Early Jurassic and meet an example of their new discovery, a theropod they named "Buddysaurus." Unfortunately, since this is a brand-new-discovery, there is no train to the home of the Buddysaurus, nor a train station! The Conductor decides to take them all to the Early Jurassic, and hike from the nearest station to find this new theropod. And, they do! They discover that the theropod is actually called a "Dracoraptor." Our kids invite him to come back to Troodon Town with them so they can present him to the Troodon Scientists.
