Dinosaur skull in Italian church?


Encased in pinkish marble-like slabs supporting a balustrade, this dinosaur -- or what's left of it -- has for centuries been the most faithful presence in the Cathedral of St. Ambrose in Vigevano, a town about 20 miles from Milan.

"The rock contains what appears to be a horizontal section of a dinosaur’s skull. The image looks like a CT scan, and clearly shows the cranium, the nasal cavities, and numerous teeth," Andrea Tintori, the University of Milan paleontologist who spotted the fossil near the altar, told Discovery News.
