ABSTRACT
Horner, Jack (1946-) is an American paleontologist who made many discoveries of dinosaur fossils. In the summer of 2000, he led an expedition that uncovered five Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons. This remarkable number in such a short time suggested that the T. rex was more common than scientists had believed. Prior to that, a total of only 20 had been unearthed worldwide.
