DINO-A-DAY #63: Yangchuanosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Yangchuanosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: yang-chew-ANN-uh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Jurassic
DISCOVERED: 1977, China
FUN FACT: Yanghuanosaurus was discovered during construction of the Shangyou Reservoir Dam in the Yongchuan District of China. That’s what we at Big Time Attic call a “dam good discovery.”
