4 year old boy in Texas finds a 100 million year old Dinosaur bone

In Mansfield, a 4-year old boy named Wiley was just digging through dirt and looking for fossils with his Zookeeper Dad when he stumbled across a once in a lifetime find. Actually it’s more like a once in a hundred million lifetimes find. Wiley found the bone of dinosaur which is estimated be 100 million years old.  

“My dad told me it was a turtle,” Wylie told the Dallas Morning News. “But now he’s telling me it’s a dinosaur.”

“We commonly go collect fossils as something we can do together to be outside. Wiley enjoys coming with me on my trips,” Brys explained.

“We were finding some fish vertebrae in the hillside, and then Wiley walked a little ways ahead of me and came back with a piece of bone. And I paused and was like, ‘OK, where did you find this?'”

The bone which is believed to be from a group of dinos called the Nodosaur is now on it’s way to Southern Methodist University in Dallas for further study.
