A huge dinosaur dig called Mission Jurassic will take place in the USA. Scientists who study fossils will go there. It is at a site called the Jurassic Mile, which is 2.6 square kilometers in size. Scientists from the USA, England and Holland will join the team. They will try to find bones from the Jurassic Era, 150 million years ago. Scientists already found many interesting things. They include dinosaur footprints, plant fossils and Diplodocus bones.

The bones will go on display at the world's largest children's museum. A co-leader of the dig said: "The hope is to find...new species of dinosaurs and the animals and plants that lived around them." A museum professor said: "This site offers a rare opportunity to build a picture of what the real Jurassic ecosystem would have looked like 150 million years ago." He hopes to find fossils from plants, crocodiles, mammals, lizards and sea life.
