Passers-by then formed a human chain to protect the site until police came and the artifacts were taken away for examination.

Work has been temporarily halted as a 1.3 square kilometer dinosaur fossil and geological protected zone is set up in the area for further scientific research.

There are fossilized dinosaur eggs everywhere in the red sandstone layer but they were never found because the city was built on top of the layers. With the recent road and sewage system upgrade, the red sandstone layer is being exposed and has led to the discovery of the fossils,” said head curator, Du Yanli.

Heyuan has now dubbed itself as China’s “Home of Dinosaurs”.
