Teacup Dinosaur Hunters (C/N)

“Teacup Dinosaur Hunters” was a somewhat disdainful nickname used by Dr. Alan Grant to describe the more academic paleontolgists and museum curators that spent more time inside the classroom giving lectures and less time out in the field. Grant, viewing himself as more of an outdoor man, understood that the most important palaeontology work took place outside and preferred to dress and behave in a different manner to the “teacup dinosaur hunters”. He even went as far as attending his lectures in jeans and sneakers to distinguish himself from them.
