Source wrote:The new discovery of Tyrannosaurus Rex bones buried for millions of years in the Hell Creek Formation north of Faith has the potential to be one of the greatest T-Rex finds of all time based on what has been excavated from the site in less than two months. [...]
According to Neal Larson, owner of Larson Paleontology Unlimited in Hill City and veteran of eight T-Rex digs around the world, Hudson’s dis covery could rival that of “Sue,” the nickname given to the world’s largest, best-preserved and most sought-after T-Rex, found about 10 miles from the Hauser ranch 23 years ago.
“Just like Sue, this is a major find … it’s amazing,” said Larson. “From what’s been excavated and everything else we’re seeing, this T-Rex could be one of the top three ever located, if not the best."

Not a fancy quote tag : ( wrote:the discovery site may hold the most complete T-Rex skeleton ever found anywhere in the world.

Could be a pretty huge find. I wonder what gaps it may fill.

I'm actually quite interested in this dig, maybe we'll actually get a complete tail!
