HARBIN (June 8) XINHUA - China's largest dinosaur skeleton is on 
display in this capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province. 

The provincial geological museum of Heilongjiang has invested 180,000 
yuan to assemble and erect the 6.5-meter-high and 11.75-meter-long 
dinosaur skeleton, which includes 60 percent real fossil bones. 

To protect the exhibit from fire, technicians and experts also 
adopted high-tech and glass-fiber reinforced plastic as raw 
materials in the construction.
