Dinosaur Wars in Smithsonian magazine



"Dinosaur Wars" is the cover story for the April 2009 issue of Smithsonian Magazine. This is a longer piece on commercial and illegal collecting of vertebrate fossils, Hollywood stars who are big collectors of fossils, etc.

Notable quote:
"The real action, however, is in the big vertebrates: dinosaurs that roamed the earth between 65 million and 220 million years ago. These are the specimens attracting the high rollers—serious collectors. Actors Harrison Ford and Nicolas Cage, for example, are rumored to have impressive collections."
