This year will see one of world's biggest ever dinosaur digs. Paleontologists from across globe will go to special site in U.S. state of Wyoming to join dig. A paleontologist is someone who studies fossils. The dig is called Mission Jurassic. Researchers from USA, England and Holland will join the Mission Jurassic team. They will try to find bones from dinosaurs that lived in area 150 million years ago, in Jurassic Era. The site of dig is known as the Jurassic Mile. It is roughly 2.6 square kilometers in size. Scientists have already uncovered many interesting things over past two years. These include dinosaur footprints, plant fossils and the bones of 30-metre-long Diplodocus.

The bones found at dig will go on display in Indianapolis - at world's largest children's museum. Professor Paul Barrett, researcher at the museum and co-leader of the dig, said: "This is area that hasn't been...extensively studied....The hope is to find new material of previously described species and, if we're lucky, new species of dinosaurs and animals and plants that lived around them." Another museum professor, Richard Herrington, said: "This site offers rare opportunity to build picture of what real Jurassic ecosystem would have looked like 150 million years ago." He hopes to find fossils, "from plants and invertebrates to ancient crocodiles, mammals, lizards and marine life".
