This picture taken on July 2, 2016 shows Oyungerel Tsedevdamba, Mongolia's former minister of culture, sport and tourism speaking during an interview in front of the Tyrannosaurus Bataar in a museum in Ulan Bator. For years, herder Gelegrash had a sideline bringing tourists to see a dinosaur skull hidden near the Flaming Cliffs in Mongolia's Gobi desert. Then, one day, it was gone. It is one of thousands of ancient fossils that have disappeared from the country since American explorer Roy Chapman Andrews -- supposedly the inspiration for the movie character Indiana Jones -- discovered dinosaur eggs there nearly a century ago.
