“The first dinosaur fossil has been found on Koh Por island in Cambodia,” Khmer Ƭimes quoted Cambodia’s Environment Minister Say Samal on October 28.

This fossil is similar in size to the shin of an elephant, unearthed in Pak Khlang commune, Mondul Seima district, Koh Kong province with Preah Sihanouk province, in March 2021.

Hun Brady, director of the Koh Kong province’s environment department, said on October 27 that researchers spent about a year studying the fossil. Based on the evidence collected, they concluded this fossil was of a dinosaur.

“After the discovery, we decided not to move the fossil because we were doing research. According to experts, the fossil is of a dinosaur, but more research is needed to know what kind of dinosaur this is,” said Mɑrady.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lim Vanchan, director of the heritage office of Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment, said that after the discovery, a team of archaeologists determined the age of this fossil to be between 65-190 million years.

“We lack experts on ancient animals, so we need to find foreign experts,” said Mr. Vɑnchan. “We will have three French experts join the research team in mid-November.”

Mr. Vanchan also said that the fossil image was presented at an international conference in November 2021, with the participation of experts from the US, France and Thailand, according to Phnom Penh Post.
