Field Museum planning Antarctic dinosaurs exhibit

Paleontologists Pete Makovicky and Nate Smith remove rock containing Cryolophosaurus bones from the Mt. Kirkpatrick quarry during a 2010-2011 expedition in Antarctica.

The Field Museum is preparing a new exhibit on Antarctic dinosaurs.

Researchers traveled to areas around Antarctica's Mount Kilpatrick and excavated fossil-bearing rocks to bring back to Chicago.

Among their finds was a 25-foot long dinosaur fossil from the Jurassic Period.

The items will go on display in summer 2018.
