Researchers to begin excavating Montanas largest dinosaur
Time:29-06-2016  Hits:7

    

    Its a massive discovery, the likes of which the state of Montana has never seen before.

    The remains of a giant dinosaur known as "Big Monty" is believed to be the biggest dinosaur ever discovered in Montana. A vertebrae measuring 3-feet and pieces of a rib that could measure up to 9-feet were recovered from a hillside where researchers were working.

    For the teams from the Judith River Dinosaur Institute and Dino Lab, locating the fossil is only half the battle. The next task will be removing it from the earth. The removal process may take two or three years to complete based on the size and condition of the fossils.

    Montana is no stranger to dinosaur discoveries, including tyrannosaurus and triceratops from the Cretaceous period. What makes this particular find unique, other than its mammoth size, is that it comes from the earths Jurassic period.

     Excavation activities will begin during the weekend of July 4, and will continue throughout the month. The entire removal may take years.
