Learn More About Most Complete T.Rex Ever Found

If you're interested in dinosaurs, you may be fascinated by the story of Sue, the largest, most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex ever discovered.

The new film "Dinosaur 13" documents the discovery of the fossils in a small town in South Dakota and the battle for ownership that followed.

On "New Day" Friday, director Todd Miller spoke with CNN's Michaela Pereira about the movie.

He described the fight between The Black Hills Institute paleontologists who first located Sue and the U.S. government, powerful museums, Native American tribes and competing paleontologists.

    RE: Dinosaur quiz. Since there's no feedback on that page, I'm showing off here. You should ask an 8 year old to proofread your quiz. Plesiosaurs and Ichthyosaurs were large marine reptiles, not dinosaurs at all. So the fact that they gave live birth does not mean that dinosaurs gave live birth.

    Also, the ancestors of bears were certainly around during the time of the dinosaurs. Mammals descended from the mammal like reptiles, Dimetrodon for example, which were around long before the dinosaurs. Mammals certainly co-existed with dinosaurs. The question is kind of bogus anyway. The ancestors of all life appeared around 4 billion years ago, give or take, so the ancestors of every species alive today co-existed with the dinosaurs.
