This year will see one the world's biggest ever dinosaur digs. Paleontologists across the globe will go to a special site the U.S. state of Wyoming to join the dig. A paleontologist is someone who studies fossils. The dig is called Mission Jurassic. Researchers the USA, England and Holland will join the Mission Jurassic team. They will try to find bones dinosaurs that lived the area 150 million years ago, the Jurassic Era. The site of the dig is known as the Jurassic Mile. It is roughly 2.6 square kilometers size. Scientists have already uncovered many interesting things the past two years. These include dinosaur footprints, plant fossils and the bones a 30-metre-long Diplodocus.
The bones found the dig will go display in Indianapolis - the world's largest children's museum. Professor Paul Barrett, a researcher the museum and a co-leader of the dig, said: "This is an area that hasn't been...extensively studied....The hope is to find new material previously described species and, if we're lucky, new species of dinosaurs and the animals and plants that lived them." Another museum professor, Richard Herrington, said: "This site offers a rare opportunity to build a picture what the real Jurassic ecosystem would have looked like 150 million years ago." He hopes to find fossils, " plants and invertebrates to ancient crocodiles, mammals, lizards and marine life".
