In 2006, two men made an amazing discovery in eastern Montana when they found the fossilized skeletons of two dinosaurs that died side by side. Evidence suggests that these dinosaurs may have even died as a result of fighting each other. Why, then, are museums and universities hesitant to purchase the fossils and put them on display? Read this informative book to learn about the debate going on between scientists and “fossil hunters” about who should be allowed to excavate fossils and what should happen to them once they’re discovered.
