What is The Beast? It’s considered one of the largest dinosaur fossils ever found!

The fossil, found in a Missouri backyard, is 2,500 pounds of rock and Parrosaurus missouriensis bones. The Parrosaurus missouriensis was a duck-billed dino with hundreds of teeth. It was also the first dinosaur found in the state of Missouri back in 1942.
