Oh Nicolas Cage, you never fail to intrigue. At this point you are a living, breathing, walking meme. You are meta personified. You buy castles, king cobras, and collections of shrunken heads. Who else would buy a stolen dinosaur head and then be contacted by homeland security to it’s rightful country? No one that’s who.
Apparently the skull was from a Tyrannosaurus bataar and was purchased through an auction back in 2007. Since then it has come to light that the skull was stolen and needed to be returned to it’s proper government, in this case Mongolia. While in this case, Nicolas Cage had nothing to do with the theft and he has been found innocent of any wrongdoing, it just seems wildly appropriate that his name would be the one attached to this bizarre crime. Nicolas Cage: Dinosaur Thief sounds like a great working title for the biography of his life.
