Highest Price For Fossil Auction Was Paid For ‘Stan’ The T.rex

Since 1992, the fossil was displayed at Black Hills Institute of Geological Research in Hill City, South Dakota.

Over the years, these bones of the dinosaur were displayed in museums around the globe such as in Tokyo to Albuquerque, New Mexico. As Stan is now owned by a private individual, paleontologists are worried that the fossil will be lost to science.
