Dino Drill

Duration: 03:19

Dr Pedro Viegas from Bristol University shows us his instrument – a tiny pneumatic drill used to dig out fragile dinosaur bones without destroying them.

The team are using these drills to excavate the Bristol Dinosaur, a Thecodontosaurus which lived 200 million years ago.
