Dinosaur fossils have been found on every continent of Earth, including Antarctica but most of the dinosaur fossils and the greatest variety of species have been found high in the deserts and badlands of North America, China, and Argentina. So far, China has identified and named more than 300 dinosaur species based on skeletal fossils, making it one of the countries with the largest number and richest variety of dinosaurs. Many other discoveries, like the recent findings, have significant implications for global dinosaur research.
Shandong Tianyu Museum of Nature is a museum located in Shandong Province, China. The dinosaur Tianyulong, discovered by a team from the museum, was named after the museum.
