Charming Lufeng World Dinosaur Valley

In China, and even throughout the world, Lufeng is the area where dinosaur fossils were discovered and famous for the greatest quantity, most complete skeletons and richest species. In this regard, Lufeng has been dubbed as “Hometown of Dinosaurs”. The World Dinosaur Valley has been active for visitors since 2008. Visitors to it are usually impressed with “Five Tops” and “Five Mysteries”.

2- The mysteries of time spans. On the hillside of 240 square meters in the same zone, there are lots of herbivorous and predatory dinosaur fossils of 240 million to 65 million years ago, spanning eras of Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. Why could these fossils be reserved?
3- The mystery of reproduction. A great number of dinosaur fossils have been discovered in Lufeng. However, not any dinosaur egg has been discovered. How did these dinosaurs multiply? Are they viviparous animals?
