Deinocheirus in Korea
Deinocheirus in Korea0In 1965, researchers discovered a pair of 2.4-m-long arms attached with three-fingered hands in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. Because the fossil could not give any further information about the creature, researchers named it Deinocheirus, meaning “terrible hand” in Greek. A research team from the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources found the missing fossils, including the skull, in the Gobi Desert in the late 2000s. With significant research surrounding these fossils, the team found out that the creature was about 5 m tall and weighed about 6.4 tons. Thanks to the use of digital restoration technologies, the team restored the skeleton about a quarter of its actual size. The skeleton is currently preserved at the Geological Museum in Daejeon.
