This place is famous for Dinosour Skeletons
Flaming cliffs which were named by paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews due to red sandstone cliffs glow at sunset are famous to the world with the first nests of dinosaur eggs, new species of dinosaurs, and the fossils of early mammals that co- existed with dinosaurs. In 1922, paleontologist Roy and his team have yielded many important findings of dinosaur fossils that are globally significant to science as they gave important insights into the evolution of vertebrates. The central Asiatic expeditions were a massive undertaking over 120 camels and 40 scientists and technicians. Two humped -Bactrian camels are native to the Gobi Desert and, they have an advantage to live in Gobi’s temperature with their humps which allow camels to dissipate heat easily in hot climate, either storing fat as a layer of insulation to protect them against the low temperatures. Camels are only mammal which can survive for longer without water, it’s because of the fat filled humps release water. Camels play essential role in the transportation. They can carry 250kg on their back and travel for extremely long distances without require rest and water. Therefore, red shore of clay formations is named by Mongolias’ as Bayanzag which means “Rich in saxauls”. Saxaul shrubs are hardly survivor, growing very slowly. These shrubs have deep, extensive root systems to reach any available moisture in the soil. In the Gobi, shrubs form small open forests, providing a valuable shelter from the elements for birds, mammals, reptiles as well as herder’s livestock. Camels browse on the nutritious leaves and local people collect the dead-wood for both heating and cooking.
