In 1858 fossil hunter William Foulke unearthed (in Haddonfield, NJ) the first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton ever found, proving what dinosaurs looked like and that they really once existed. William's discovery ended years of speculation. It changed paleontology from a gentlemen's hobby to a mainstream science. This find CHANGED THE WORLD!
