Historic Fossil Find

"This is like a holy grail for paleontology," said Jørn Hurum, a scientist at the University of Oslo's Natural History Museum who arranged to buy the fossil from private collectors about two years ago. Hurum is co-author of a paper published today in the journal PLoS ONE detailing the finding. "This fossil will probably be pictured in all the text books for the next 100 years," he said.
