Chris Pratt and paleontologist Jack Horner crack dino mysteries

Vsauce host Michael Stevens talks with Chris Pratt and expert paleontologist Jack Horner about the science behind the hit blockbuster film "Jurassic World."

Are we fueling our cars with dinosaur remains? Are dinosaurs actually extinct? Hold on to your butts.

In a new Vsauce video that posted Wednesday, host Michael Stevens attempts to answer those questions, and more, by calling in the experts.

Vsauce produces videos that tell stories about our universe. For this video, Stevens talked to Chris Pratt, the actor who plays Owen Grady in the record-breaking blockbuster "Jurassic World," and Jack Horner, a world-renowned paleontologist who has served as technical adviser for all of the "Jurassic Park" movies. Horner also served as the inspiration for Dr. Alan Grant, a character in the "Jurassic Park" novel and two of the movies.

The video above has a good amount of Chris Pratt being Chris Pratt, while Stevens and Horner talk about things like dinosaur poop and whether today's birds are actually dinosaurs. It's equal parts funny and educational, and the clip is well worth the 10-minute watch for all you dino fans out there.
