150 Million Years Old Dinosaur Remains in Dubai: Where You Can See Them

Dinosaur in Dubai alert! Well, a dinosaur skeleton anyway. We hear that UAE developer Emaar has bought the remains of a 150 million year old dinosaur for permanent display at The Dubai Mall.

So what do we know about this dinosaur? Well, its remains were recently discovered at Dan Quarry in Wyoming, USA. It's the first time ever that bones from an adult animal were found in a sleeping position.

The Dana Quarry's located at the western edge of the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming and its sand and mudstone deposits form the Morrison Formation, dating back to the late Jurassic Period - approximately 150 million years ago.

Ahlan! has contacted Emaar to confirm the news but haven't heard back yet. Watch this space for updates!
