Fossils of a 20 million-year-old giant rhino restored in SW China

Experts have pieced together the fossil remains of a 20 million-year-old giant rhino at a museum in Chengdu, capital city of southwest China’s Sichuan province. Judging from its skeleton, which is 8.8 meters in length, 4.2 meters in height, and 2 meters in width, it is estimated that it weighed more than 20 tons when it was alive. The large rhino got stuck in mud before it died, archaeological experts inferred. In March, the rhino skeleton will be shipped to a museum in Wuhan, central China. The restoration project took three years and 1.5 million yuan to complete.
