Dinosours, like Vincent Van Gogh, found few takers in their lifetime. Now removed from the face of the earth...again, like Van Gogh...they are raking in millions.
For the last 2 years, locals in northeastern Thailand are stripping unguarded excavation sites and selling fossilised dinosaur bone as the best cureall since rhino horns. They earn up to $1,000 in a single night -- much more than the locals' average annual income. Much has already been lost, and this loot can mean that complete ruin of the dinosaur graveyards.
