FameRank: 4

"Peter L. Larson" (born 1952) is an American paleontologist, Fossil collecting/fossil collector, and president of the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, Inc./Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, a company that excavates, prepares, and sells fossils. He led the team that excavated "Sue (dinosaur)/Sue", the largest and most complete specimen of Tyrannosaurus/Tyrannosaurus rex found to date, and has published numerous scientific and popular works on dinosaur paleontology, yet his commercial enterprises and support of private collections have made him a controversial figure among academic paleontologists.
