BEIJING -- Paleontologists in east China have dug up what they believe is
one of the world's largest group of fossilized dinosaur bones, including the
remains of an enormous "platypus," state press said Tuesday.
Paleontologists have discovered 15 areas near Zhucheng city in Shandong
province that contain thousands of dinosaur bones, the Beijing News
"This group of fossilized dinosaurs is currently the largest ever discovered
in the world... in terms of area," the paper cited paleontologist Zhao Xijin
of the China Academy of Sciences as saying.
In one area measuring 300 meters by 10 meters, more than 3,000 bones were
found, the report said. Since digging began in March scientists have
discovered more than 7,600 bones.
