Dinosaurs of Laos

To date, the most extensive collection of dinosaurs native to Laos are found near Savannakhet, which is of course, home to the famous Dinosaur Museum, which opened in 2000, the Year of the Dragon.

As it is now 2012, or the return of the Year of the Dragon, I think it would be wonderful to see more donations and support given to them this year. But more on that later in the year.

Hopefully, we'll see more scholarship done in the years ahead, but in the meantime we know there are at least 4 main types of dinosaurs you'll find in Laos: Sauropods, Theropods, including relatives of Tyrannosaurus Rex, Iguanodons, and Psittacosaurus.

Hopefully this knowledge will come in handy later on down the line.

You can visit the Savannakhet Dinosaur Museum at Thanon Khanthaburi, Ban Sayaphoum, Muang Khanthaburi, Khoueng, Savannakhet, Laos.
