Employees of the Natural History Museum in London renamed the dinosaur`s skeleton due to the fact that the name of the exhibit contained a mistake, pointed out by the boy of ten years old.
Schoolboy Charlie Edwards came at the exhibition and went to the display with information about the oviraptor. The young Briton drew attention to the discrepancy of the size of this species. Oviraptor - a small dinosaur with a short beak, that moved on its hind legs. But the plate had a picture of a protoceratops - a herbivorous dinosaur, walking on four legs. Charlie immediately told about that mistake to his parents, who did not believe the child's words at first.
As soon as the family returned home, the boy wrote a letter to the museum, in which he indicated that the display showed not an oviraptor, as it was supposed to be, but a representative of the triceratops species. Employees of the Natural History Museum answered the schoolboy in a short time. In their letter, they acknowledged the mistake and thanked Charlie for his attentiveness. "We are very surprised by the Charlie`s knowledge, and we hope very much that he will not lose such passion for paleontology," - the museum spokesman said.
