Big Fight Over Big Dinosaur Bones

Big Fight Over Big Dinosaur Bones

Two dinosaur-bone hunters whose excavation of a rare juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton nearly 20 years ago in South Dakota set off a lengthy court battle are back in court, fighting over the sale of their partnership’s fossils.

First look reveal of Dinosaurs in the Wild - set to launch in the UK this June
Dinosaurs in the Wild offers a sneak peek of the extraordinary sets and special effects that will officially open to the public in June.
It is the first reveal of a scientific research station called TimeBase 67, built 67 million years ago in the late Cretaceous Period – part of the story in the unique, immersive, live-action dinosaur adventure.
The experience, which takes visitors back by time machine, combines theatre, theme park fun and the latest science – weaving live sets together with cutting-edge computer-generated imagery and animatronics to create a believable prehistoric world, where visitors will feel as though they are really there, in the time of the dinosaurs.
Today, the producers took the wraps off one of the key areas in the adventure, the Pathology Laboratory, packed with features used by the time-travelling scientists to study dinosaurs.
There is a dazzling array of over two thousand vials and jars of amazing items, like dinosaur tissue samples, eyeballs, brains, teeth and claws of the creatures that lived at that time.
One of the main features is the heart of a huge Alamosaurus in a glass cylinder, where visitors can see how much energy it took to drive blood up the five-metre long neck of the giraffe-like giant.
They can also get their hands into piles of dinosaur poo to discover the difference between carnivore and herbivore droppings, examine prehistoric parasites and dinosaur skin under the microscope, find out what it was like to see through a dinosaur’s eyes using virtual reality and test their arm strength in comparison to a Tyrannosaurus rex..
