We’re meeting Kylie Ferguson, who found the fossilized skull of a nimravid in Badlands National Park as a third grader. The nimravid is distantly related to the saber-toothed cat – but no less ferocious. Kylie revisits the skull she found years ago and learns that it contains all the makings of a 32-million-year-old murder mystery.
