Montana Dinosaur Hunter: Jack Horner – Montana State University’s Museum of the Rockies
Jack Horner found his first dinosaur bone when he was 8 years old.
Growing up in rural Shelby, Horner liked to go on hikes, looking for things to collect.
"I used to walk around collecting everything," said Horner, now 65, with a crop of untamed white hair.
"I filled my parents house up with all kinds of junk I found – fossils, seashells, junk," he said. "Anything that was cool looking, I brought it home."
One of the most prominent and controversial paleontologists in the nation, Horner was an inspiration for the book and Hollywood blockbuster "Jurassic Park."
And for 29-years, he’s been curator of paleontology at Montana State University’s Museum of the Rockies http://www.museumoftherockies.org/ .
