LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — In a story Sept. 25 about the University of Kansas' acquisition of Tyrannosaurus rex bones, The Associated Press, based on information from 6News Lawrence, erroneously reported that they would be the first Tyrannosaurus rex bones to go on display in Kansas. The Museum of World Treasures in Wichita has been displaying such bones since 2007.
A corrected version of the story is below:
KU institute gets Tyrannosaurus rex bones
University of Kansas' Biodiversity Institute studying bones of Tyrannosaurus rex
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Paleontologists at the Biodiversity Institute at the University of Kansas are getting a chance to study the bones of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
6News Lawrence reports (http://bit.ly/18pEQzG ) that the dinosaur's fossils came from a collections museum in St. Louis, which decided it could not keep the collection.
State paleontologist David Burnham says it's unclear what age the dinosaur was when it died but that it isn't believed to have been full grown. To determine the age, Kansas paleontologists will search for more remains where the fossil was found in Jordan, Mont.
Burnham says the bones also will go on display at the university's natural history museum.
