When a dinosaur fossil is gone it's gone forever
Palaeontologists and museum curators try to keep their objects safe, but sometimes there are forces outside of their controlPeriodically palaeontologists will announce a new candidate forthe largest dinosaur to have ever walked the Earth with the finding of a new specimen or species. There are multiple credible candidates for this title on display in various museums though sadly each is inevitably represented by less than complete remains. Most recentlya new giant from Argentina has been on show in the US that might top the lot, but even this may not have beaten a near mythical animal:a giant that was known from a single a...
