Eternal Merge – Chaoyang, China

This is my second entry for this weeks topic. Chaoyang, in northeast China, is known as China’s “fossil city”. It is where the feathered dinosaur fossils have been discovered, which have been dated to 124 million years ago from the lower Cretaceous period. At that time there was a shallow lake in the area that was buried under mud and volcanic ash which preserved  the skeletons of many creatures in tact. At the Chaoyang Paleontological Museum many of the best fossils are displayed. Although not a “feathered dinosaur”, the show piece at the museum is a skeletal fossil of two Psittacosaurus dinosaurs who were caught in the act of mating for all eternity. Hence the name of the exhibit  “Eternal Love.” For this week’s challenged I have renamed it to “Eternal Merge.”
