Fossil hunter Mark Norell wasn't always wild about dinosaurs. As a kid, he wanted be an anthropologist. Then, little by little, his love of natural sciences and extreme camping led him to paleontology. Mark has made some famous discoveries that help show how extinct non-bird dinosaurs are related to modern birds.
