Jack Tseng

High in the Himalayas, among the tallest peaks on the planet, paleontologists hunt for fossils of ancient carnivores. Join Dr. Jack Tseng, a post-doctoral researcher in the department of vertebrate paleontology, as he recounts his experiences on expeditions to the Tibetan Plateau and Himalayan Mountains, searching for the remains of dogs, cats, and hyenas. See the tools Jack uses as he unearths ancestral snow leopards, speedy hyenas, and geography-defying foxes. 

For an animated introduction to Jack’s research, see this video produced by PhD Comics:
