In May of 2015, Jason Love and Luke Tufts – two friends who met at the University of Washington – went fossil hunting around the Hell Creek Formation in Northeastern Montana, a region known for its fossil sites.

On their last day, the two went out on government land to cover some more ground before heading home.

“Fifteen minutes into it Jason walked onto to a big boulder with some bones in it,” Tufts said.
