"Raymond" the Triceratops?!?
I was reading the most recent Lapidary Journal and I saw an article about
a new articulated Triceratops foreleg. "Raymond" The picture that
accompanied the article showed it before it was taken from the ground. Apart
from the article mostly talking about paleontologists disagreeing with each
other about triceratops' stance, it did reveal that the leg was going to a
private collector (probably in Europe), and that 2 casts will be made, one
which will be displayed at the Black Hills Institute.
Who found it?
Why is it going to a private collector?
What kind of condition is it in? Is the articulation clear?
Will there be a paper on it?
Who is preparing it, and if it is Black Hills, why are they doing it for a
private collector? Is it in trade for the casts?
Will the leg remain accessable to paleontologists in it's private
collection? Or will it only be the casts from now on?
