Reporter Montana Hodges tells the spellbinding narrative of the fossil hunters, commercial dealers, museum curators and professors of paleontology involved in the scuffle over the pair of skeletons that have come to be known as the Dueling Dinosaurs.

Below here, watch individuals from the story explain their side of the story. Read the full piece here.
