Tugrugiin Shiree

Togrogiin Shiree is an escarpment in the Gobi with an abundance of fossils. This 30m high cliff is situated 30km from Bulgan Soum, Umnugobi Aimag. Several fossilized young dinosaurs in their eggs were found here. Mongol-Poland joint expedition headed by doctor Barsbold discovered a famous find known as “Fighting Dinosaurs” in the 1970s. Tugrugyn Shiree is surrounded by muddy land and on the southwest there is a well called Tugrugyn Bulag. On the southeast there is a crescent-shaped sandy Ovoo.
Mongolia is one of the world’s most important countries for paleontology with the discovery of 40 species of dinosaurs. Some of the best dinosaur exhibits in the world are in the Natural History Museum in Ulaanbaatar. Not only complete dinosaur skeletons but the world’s best collection of dinosaur eggs and their amazing nests are found in the museum. These displays will satisfy some visitors but there are more dinosaur remains in other institutes and in some regional province museums.
