I am full of joy to see the Ningbo Lufeng Dragon Exhibition. Lufeng dragon lived in the early Jurassic period about 191 million years ago. It is the earliest sauropod dinosaur found in China. In 1938, it was in Lufeng County, Yunnan. A complete dinosaur fossil was unearthed. This is the first complete dinosaur fossil excavated in China. It is one of the oldest dinosaurs, and Lufenglong is the ancestor of giant herbivorous dinosaurs. I still remember a visitor from Yunnan when animatronic a dinosaur exhibition in Ningbo. He said that he had unearthed dinosaur fossils in his hometown, and when I asked, it turned out that he was from Lufeng County.

animatronic Lufenglong is a medium-sized dinosaur. It is about 6 meters in length and stands more than 2.3 meters in height. It is similar to the shape of a horse today. It has a small head, a simple skull structure, a triangular nostril, and small and short eye holes. High, large and round eyes; long mouth, articular surface of jaw bone and teeth are almost on a horizontal plane; teeth are small and look like small leaves with serrated teeth around, such teeth are easy to swallow plants; neck is long and spine is relatively thick; The forelegs are short, only one third of the hind limbs, with five fingers; the hind limbs are thick; the femur is longer than the tibia; a large, thick tail is dragged behind, which can be used to support the body when standing, and help raise the head and neck.

For the animatronic of Lu Fenglong, the long tail dragging behind it can be great. In addition to balancing the body, when it is sleepy, it can find a safe and hidden place and drag the tail to the ground. The hind legs just form a stable three-legged bracket with the long tail. The tail is like a small chair that it carries around. You can safely close your eyes and take a nap when you sit on it.

As a dinosaur living in shallow waters, Lufenglong mainly feeds on plant leaves or soft algae and grasses, and usually walks on two feet. And OK. When Lu Fenglong strolled along the shores of lakes and swamps and devoured the young leaves of plants, he would watch the surrounding situation with great vigilance, and if he encountered a carnivorous dinosaur, he quickly ran away. If it really confronts a carnivorous dinosaur, Lu Fenglong is not a weak person who is bullied by the enemy. It will wield a thick tail and knock out the attacker with Zhangya dance claws, or even put it to death. Scientists found that all the dinosaur fossils excavated by Lufenglong had their heads facing the east, and no one knows what happened in the east at that time.
