Dinosaur fossils from 100 mln years ago found in NE China

Paleontologists say fossils unearthed from a site in northeast China’s Jilin Province could be the bones of dinosaurs that lived over 100 million years ago.

The fossils are likely those of iguanodons, a massive herbivorous bipedal dinosaur with a long heavy tail, which were common in Europe some 140 million to 120 million years ago.

Paleontologists say the dinosaur could be around 10 meters long based on a one-meter femur bone discovered at the site.

The area has been cordoned off. Archaeologists have not ruled out the possibility of unearthing a complete skeleton.
