A lawmaker representing Massachusetts, U.S. has unveiled plans to designate an official state dinosaur.

According to news agency Associated Press, Rep. Jack Lewis is now asking the public help to choose the dinosaur.

Residents have to select between podokesaurus holyokensis and anchisaurus polyzelus.

Lewis, in a tweet, said he plans to officially file the proposed legislation before Congress eventually.

The lawmaker then explained that the effort is a good way for children to learn about the legislative process.

He has tapped licensed paleontologists to serve as his consultants for the said project.

Over in North Carolina, Raleigh museum now owns the fossil skeletons of two “dueling dinosaurs.”

Friends of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences acquired them with private funds.

The 67-million-year-old fossil pair consists of a remarkably preserved T. rex and an equally intact Triceratops.

The display, slated to open to the public in 2022, will then allow museum-goers to watch as staff examine the fossils of the dueling dinosaurs.

The multimillion-dollar skeletons were the subject of a court battle over who owned them after discovery in 2006.

Meanwhile, the perfectly preserved skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex, nicknamed Stan, will go on sale.
