Diplodocus For Sale – Sold! – And Going to Copenhagen

I previously worried about a rare Diplodocus skeleton going up for auction.  Then I worried again when it was sold.

There was good reason for my worries — unique specimens enter private hands all the time and are lost to science.  But it turns out that this particular Diplodocus will be well housed after all.  It’s going to Copenhagen as a centerpiece of an impressive-looking Natural History Museum of Denmark, scheduled to open in 2018.

If you find yourself in Copenhagen five years from now, be sure to pay the museum and its Diplodocus a visit.
