Dinosaur Bones in RDR 2 are one of the many collectibles in the game. The bones can be found strewn across the map in Red Dead Redemption 2. Finding all of these collectibles can be pretty valuable, not just for the completion rating. You can report the locations of the RDR 2 dinosaur bones to a paleontologist that you can find, and she’ll reward you for them. That said, our Red Dead Redemption 2 Dinosaur Bones Locations will show you where to find them all, as well as the location of the paleontologist.
NOTE: This guide is a work in progress. We’re going to keep updating it with further locations as we discover them.
RDR 2 Dinosaur Bone Locations – Where to Find – The Heartlands
One of the dinosaur bones is the Grassy Hills dinosaur bones. The easiest way to do so is to start at Flatneck Station and just keep riding east until your in the Heartlands, more or less south of the first A in Heartlands on the map. You can also use the telephone (or is it telegraph) poles as orientation, because the dinosaur bones are near them. It’s near the local Trading Post and the small railroad bridge. In fact, they bones are kinda hard to miss, since it’s a huge ribcage jutting out of the ground.
The next one of the Dinosaur Bones collectibles in The Heartlands can be found near the Oil Derrick. Or, rather, below it. The location you’re hunting for is just below the R in Heartlands on the map. Once you get to Oil Derrick, you’ll have to go deep underground. Fortunately, you have a ladder there that will let you go down and approach the dinosaur bones. The last step is to investigate the remains; a huge dinosaur skull. After that, you’ll have a note of the location that you can give to the paleontologist once you find her.
Where to Find Paleontologist in RDR 2?
To find the paleontologist in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll have to go into The Heartlands. The area you’re looking for is southeast of Horseshoe Overlook. Just go south of the letter H in the word Heartlands, a bit further south of the badger icon. The game will tell you that there’s a stranger nearby once you’re in her vicinity. You’ll find the paleontologist, Deborah MacGuiness, digging up some bones next to a cart. Talk to her, and you’ll give her all the dinosaur bone locations that you’ve found so far.
