Near Bismarck, North Dakota, aÂ tooth from a Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur and other fossils were discovered in an archeologicalÂ dig. The North Dakota Geological Survey held a public dig this summer and made the finds.Â The best find was the tooth. Â
"Paleontologist John Hoganson says weather didnâ€™t cooperate and diggers didnâ€™t discover anything that hadnâ€™t been found before in the state.Â But he says diggers found one interesting site on Forest Service land near Marmarth that contained remains of several types of dinosaurs," according to The Grand Forks Herald.
This is an area of North Dakota where many dinosaur artifacts have been found before, so digging there is always fun, but this tooth of a Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur is a special treat. The state plans on keeping all the dig's finds, and put them in a state museum. While the weather didn't cooperate, the bones and artifacts did. How very exciting to go on a dig like that. Would you enjoy such a dig?
