Yea its very interesting, i like this part though lol:

The top-level international research team, who have studied her in secret for the past two years

Like its some secret weapon! If they didnt keep it a secret, the Iranians would steal it for themselves :eek:!

Its going to be at the natural history museum near me on the 26th! Doubt id get near lol.

Its been in someone's possession for 20 (+) years before finally being sold to this museum? I'm skeptical that its integrity has been preserved during that time.

But it is still a very intriguing specimen to be sure :)

*shrugs* It's OK, I guess. It's not like they found a new dinosaur or anything. :D

Well that is generally how it goes, someone digs something up and collectors or museums buy em. That it was 20 years could have been any number of factors.

Ah it all makes sense to me now :) I'm no longer skeptical like I was before.

I was showing this to a couple of kids at school today and they seemed quite interested. Then they asked me how it died, cue me waffling about the poor thing falling into the mud and dying. They looked at each other with bright eyes, 'Can we see it die? We want to see how it died'


ummmmmmm that would be no.


*tuts* kids.

Yeah, it is likely that it was being studied during that time just because of the unlikely nature of it. Few museums would buy something they didn't know was genuine.
