CHICAGO (CBS) – A new dinosaur fossil will be unveiled at the Field Museum Friday.
The fossil comes from the remains of a 35-foot-long duck-billed dinosaur unearthed in Missouri in 2017.
The largest piece of the dinosaur, a 2,500-pound block of fossils nicknamed "the Beast," will arrive at the museum on Friday.
After it arrives at the museum, it will undergo a months-long process of being removed from its plaster jacket, and having the surrounding rock removed so scientists can examine the bones.
NOTE: This story has been corrected from an earlier version. The arrival of the fossil will not be open to the public.
