Dawn of the dinosaurs: Last-minute mystery donor tops up multimillion-dollar sum to clinch $8m deal for dinosaur bones

Twinky, the baby among the three dinosaur skeletons that Raffles Museum has bought, was mounted last weekend in Utah in the US. -- PHOTO: RAFFLES MUSEUM OF BIODIVERSITY RESEARCH By Tan Dawn Wei The dinosaurs are really coming, thanks to a last-minute multimillion-dollar donation from a mysterious donor. After racing to raise $8 million to buy three near-complete dinosaur skeletons dug up from Wyoming in the United States, the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research sealed the deal on Monday. It almost did not happen, after the museum missed the July 31 deadline set by the sellers, Wyoming-based fossil company Dinosauria International. The museum had managed to raise close to only $2 million of the amount needed to secure the fossils. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
