The Mainichi Shimbun has posted an interesting story on the finding of two dinosaur teeth fossils in Nagasaki Prefecture.
According to the article:
FUKUI (Kyodo) -- Two fossilized teeth of what could be the largest carnivorous dinosaur that existed in Japan have been found from a layer of earth some 81 million years old in Nagasaki, the city and a Fukui prefectural museum said Tuesday.
The teeth belonging to the dinosaur, estimated to be about 10 meters long, are the first fossils of a large dinosaur among the Tyrannosauridae family to be found in Japan, according to the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum.
"Other fossils have been found in Nagasaki as well, leading us to reaffirm that various dinosaurs existed there," said Kazunori Miyata, chief researcher at the museum.
The teeth fossils were unearthed in May 2014 from the same area but whether they belong to the same individual remains unclear, the museum said.Beginning Friday, the fossils will be put on display at the Nagasaki Science Museum and replicas at the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum.
