We sit down with the dinosaur explorer and author, Don Lessem. We talk about his work on the film Jurassic Park, his fascination with Genghis Khan, and how he built his robot dinosaur and museum exhibition business.

Don is one of the world's leading presenters of dinosaurs, the author of 40 books of natural history and adviser to Stephen Spielberg's Jurassic Park. Mr. Lessem has excavated and reconstructed the world's largest meat-eating and plant-eating dinosaurs in Patagonia and Mongolia. He creates giant touring exhibitions, is host and creator of NOVA documentaries, and adviser to Universal Studios and Disney theme parks. The Argentine dinosaur, Lessemsaurus, was named in honor of his contributions to dinosaur research.
