BISMARCK - Work will start later this month to carefully unpack the remains of a 4-ton dinosaur at the North Dakota Heritage Center.

The fossil will be removed from blocks in plaster casts with special tools, under magnifying lenses.

The fossilized duckbilled hadrosaur, named Dakota, was found in 1999 in southwestern North Dakota.

It is believed to be one of the world's most complete dinosaur mummies, fossilized into stone with skin, ligaments, tendons and possibly some internal organs.

The Heritage Center plans a public opening of the fossil display June 7.
