Lost and Found...

CNN has a fascinating story about what happens when someone misplaces an archeologic find and someone else finds it in the basement... 60 years later.
The 210 million-year-old fossil had sat in storage at the museum for nearly 60 years and was found only by accident, the paleontologists said.

The animal is interesting because it closely resembles a completely unrelated dinosaur called an ostrich dinosaur that lived 80 million years later, they report in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, a British science journal.
The entire story is right here.
