Tyrannosaurus Can Trod Off to Mongolia

     MANHATTAN (CN) - A tyrannosaurus skeleton can return to Mongolia, now that its sole claimant in the United States has dropped off, a federal judge ruled.

     The Tyrannosaurus Bataar, also known as a Tarbosaurus, lived around 70 million years ago, in the cretaceous period.

     In 1946, a joint Soviet-Mongolian mission discovered the species in the Gobi Desert, and a nearly complete skeleton made its way to Texas for auction two years ago, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
