I apologize for coming off a bit sharp. As a paleontologist, it's a bit of a sore spot with me. I didn't mean to imply that you were claiming anything untrue, but on rereading my post I can see that I worded it poorly. Again, mea culpa, I apologize.
I also have an issue with buying and selling fossil specimens, but I have tried hard to keep that out of my posts as it's a market issue, not a personal or professional issue. It just makes me really sad to see important specimens ending up locked away in some Chinese collector's hoard rather than on display. It also piques me a bit to have to pay $40 admission to a museum because they have to pay through the nose for their specimens. But that is nothing to do with you or this specimen, because the market exists and makes it impossible to remain altruistic. I know I couldn't. The universities are too busy putting exotic hardwood paneling in the varsity football locker rooms to fund digs anymore, and corporate sponsors want guaranteed quick results before they will commit, so the only way these very expensive expeditions will happen is if they can sell off the specimens recovered. I get that. I would just dearly love to see this spectacular specimen and I know I never will, and it makes me cranky to think of all the others I will never know about that have been locked away before anyone got a chance to properly document them. Some of them will be published, but the only people who see that are those who can afford to subscribe to dozens of journals at hundreds of dollars a year each.
One of my favorite places in the world is the Royal Tyrrell museum in Drumheller, Alberta. Just to be in the presence of their spectacular Megalotherium or Bison crassicornus displays, and watch the response of the kids coming through, is an experience to be treasured. Although I know there are more specimens out there than could ever be publicly displayed, I guess I'm greedy that way.
