Photo Journal: Extraordinary excavation

Visitors flock to the first public viewing of the "Mukawa dinosaur," an 8-meter-long, 4-meter high Hadrosaurid, a herbivorous dinosaur, in the town of Mukawa, Hokkaido, on June 4, 2017. Excavation of the bones began here in 2013, and a team from Hokkaido University and others involved in the project announced in April of this year that the roughly 190 fossilized bones form the largest fossilized dinosaur skeleton to ever be unearthed in Japan. The first public viewing was held on June 4, and another public exhibition of the bones is planned for June 11. (Mainichi)
