Located in Xixia County, Nanyang City of Henan Province, the Xixia Dinosaur Relics Park of China is famous for its complete array of dinosaur egg fossils, which are dubbed the world's ninth wonder following the "Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses in Emperor Qin Shihuang's Mausoleum." The park, which is a sedimentary faulted basin in the Cretaceous Age, consists of a geological education square, a dinosaur egg fossils museum, a dinosaur museum, a dinosaur egg site and a dinosaur simulation park. Two rare species named Macroelongatoolithus xixiaaensis and Prismatoolithus gebiensis were excavated in this area. [Photo by Zhang Junmian/China.org.cn]
