In Chinese culture, the dragon has always been a symbol of auspiciousness and honor. In many fairy tales, we can often see the figure of the dragon. They can turn their hands into clouds and cover their hands with rain. In ancient society, our ancestors would choose to pray to the dragon for good weather next year. In our opinion, the dragon is a legendary image. Although scientists have been looking for the dragon for so many years, it has no effect. However, in recent days, Chinese scientists have discovered an ancient fossil group on the mountain of Longgong town in Guizhou Province. Two fossils are very similar to the keel. Is there a dragon in Longgong?
When scientists came to the mountain, they saw a stone slab, which was mined more than a year ago. Two very obvious keel fossils were carved on the stone slab. When the scientists washed the stone board with water, they wiped it carefully and could see the dragon fossil more clearly. There are two fossils of dragons on this slate. One is in a supine shape, and the other is lying on the slate. On this slate, the skull, tailbone and spine of the dragon are clearly visible, which is a very important discovery for scientists. According to their exploration, the fossil length of the two dragons ranges from 0.8 meters to 1.2 meters.
Paleontological fossil group
In fact, in addition to the Longhua stone, there have been other patterns. Local residents told scientists that the mountain where dragon fossils were found used to be the place where local people started to collect rocks. At that time, gecko and dragon patterns appeared on many stones. At that time, they didn’t know what this meant, so they broke these stones to build houses. In fact, this fossil group was first discovered in August this year. At that time, geologists were investigating geological disasters. They found this fossil group of Paleontology and immediately reported it to a professional organization.
When scientists came to this fossil group, they also found other bone fossils, many coral and plant fossils in the eyes of scientists. They think that the appearance of these two dinosaurs may fill in the gap in the history of biological evolution, which is of great significance to the study of the climate evolution and geological features at that time.
From the current exploration situation, there are two dragon fossils on a stone slab, and there are other bone fossils nearby. Scientists believe that perhaps in the distant past, there were a lot of creatures in this mountain range, and perhaps more fossils will appear in the unexplored strata.
Scientists believe that the dinosaur fossils they found should belong to the Guizhou dragon that lived in the Middle Triassic period. Of course, this is only their current guess. Since the heads of these two dinosaurs have not been found, there is no way to judge the specific species only from the appearance. Only after further research by scientists can we get the results.
