In the Wrong Place at the Wrong Time
A new dinosaur was recently discovered in China. The amazing dragon from Lingwu, or Lingwulong shenqui, is a neosauropod, a long-necked plant eater. Paleontologists were surprised to find the 174 million year-old fossils in East Asia, because it was believed that area was cut off by Jurassic seaways. It’s 15 million years older than previously known neosauropods!
