Isle of Wight dinosaur bones being restored


Experts are restoring the bones of a 12ft (3.6m) dinosaur unearthed on the Isle of Wight. The Valdosaurus, a plant eating reptile, was found by a walker who spotted bones sticking out from mud on the island’s south west coast. Encased in sandstone, the skeleton has been excavated in seven blocks by experts from the Dinosaur Isle Museum. Restoration is expected to take several months, and the bones will then go on display at the museum in Yaverland.
