Re: [dinosaur] Pterosaur from Lebanon + Bay of Fundy theropod fossil + more



The pterosaur was donated to a museum in Beirut:

"Following a decade of stewardship at the University of Alberta, the quarry owner recently sold the pterosaur. The buyer subsequently donated the specimen to the Mineralogy Museum at Saint Joseph's University in Beirut -- the oldest university in Lebanon -- to become the centrepiece of their Lebanese vertebrate fossil exhibition".

Some recent items:

New Cretaceous pterosaur specimen  returns to Lebanon after study  in Alberta (note that this privately owned specimen may be sold (not curated) in the future even though a scientific description of the new taxon will be published in a major journal)
