Outcry halts sale of fossils

May 13, 2014

A collection of 85-million-year-old fossils, including a fish as big as a great white shark with a face like a bulldog, has been donated to a new Kansas museum after an outcry from scientists helped scrap a San Diego museum's plans to sell them at auction.

In November the San Diego Natural History Museum reversed its plans to sell the fossils after critics argued such valuable prehistoric material should stay in the public domain. - Reuters
