Interview with paleontologist Carl Mehling

Matt and Dr. MehlingOne of the best things about working on the Mad Scientist Academy books is that I get to meet real scientists as part of my research. When I was writing The Dinosaur Disaster, I got to work with a real-life dinosaur expert, Carl Mehling, a paleontologist and Senior Scientific Assistant at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Carl generously agreed to sit down with me to talk about what a paleontologist actually does. He’s a fascinating guy, and he has one of the coolest jobs I know. Check out the whole interview here.
