Since the first dinosaur fossils were recognized in the early nineteenth century, mounted dinosaur skeletons have become major attractions at museums around the world. According to the report, there has been some tension between WDI and OLC as of late, as OLC seems to be more resistant to the high budget price estimates WDI has been giving them for new large proposals like the Cars Land one they turned down.
