Dueling Dinosaurs

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Matthew Carrano, Curator of Dinosauria at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History, discusses the dueling dinosaur fossils that were discovered in Montana in 2006, by commercial prospectors on a privately owned land. They’ll be auctioned and are expected to fetch possibly of the highest price ever paid for dinosaur fossils, which excludes museums from acquiring them. He’ll also look at  how fossils are acquired by museums and collectors.
