Nicholas Cages Dinosaur Skull

Published: 30th Oct 2013

Was the skull of a Tyrannosaurus bataar that Nicholas Cage bought at auction in 2007 originally stolen. The Daily Telegraph has discovered that the skull originated from Eric Prokopi who was found guilty of importing fossils into America illegally.

US Customs are now looking into the matter and may eventually confiscate Cage’s Tyrannosaur skull. He outbid another Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio for the skull, which eventually went for $276,000 (£172,000).
