‘Duel’ t. The bitter cold of Rex and Trickratops can finally be resolved

“Duel dinosaur” fossils – 67 million year old remains that may be most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex And triceratops On record, the animals who were presumably locked in battle when they died – are finally unraveling their secrets. The iconic fossils are heading to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (NCMNS), where a state-of-the-art interactive exhibition will be built around them, the museum announced today (November 17).

The fossils are mired in controversy. They are notable specimens, comprising 100% of the bones of both creatures, as well as body morphology, skin impressions, and possibly soft tissues and residues of stomach contents. But following their discovery by commercial collectors in eastern Montana in 2006, the dinosaurs failed to sell at auction and later became involved in a lawsuit that attempted to redefine Fossils In the form of minerals. And the scientific community was torn about fossils; Many were excited to learn about the dinosaurs, but some said they are scientifically useless and others dislike that they are being sold by profit-takers.
