Rolla Student Finds Dinosaur Fossil

(Rolla) A Missouri college student has made a discovery of a lifetime, a dinosaur fossil.

Emma Puetz, a junior in geology at Missouri University of Science and Technology, found the crown of a triceratops head during field schooling in Montana over the summer.

Puetz, who is from Rolla, says she found the fossil while hiking in the Montana canyons.

After she gets the proper permitting to dig, Puetz plans to travel back to Montana next summer to excavate the fossil.

The remains will likely head to the Museum of the Rockies in Montana but there is a chance the fossil could be prepared at Missouri S-and-T.
