    In 2005, Palaeontologist Mary Schweitzer and her team made the discovery of finding original soft tissue, including blood vessels, in a Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil in Montana. Many of Schweitzer's fellow scientists insisted that she had been mistaken because of previous theories of how fossils were preserved. The fossil was buried in a permeable sandstone, where groundwater could get in. Since organic material is quickly broken down in water, the soft tissue should have decayed quickly under the conditions

    Why Did The T-Rex Cross the Road? Because Chickens Hadn’t Evolved Yet! The Discovery of the “new” T-Rex occurred during the blistering heat of a Ganzhou summer by a construction worker in the city. Obviously, it was not a paleontological expedition, but it quickly turned into one after the worker’s backhoe slammed into a rock-hard barrier.
