[ STRIDING TARBOSAURUS ]
A Tarbosaurus strides over the dry lands of Asian upcountry. In a sparse scrub of arid climate, a Homalocephale is hiding to avoid danger. Up on the slope on the left, an Opisthocoelicaudia, a sauropod, grazes tree leaves leisurely. Beyond the woods on the right, a Therizinosaurus has just shown its ugly appearance out of the desert.
In the refreshing clear sky, a group of ancient birds are soaring. They are in almost the same shape of present birds, as a result of constant evolution since the Early Cretaceous.
This is a scene on a corner of Mongolia towards the end of the Cretaceous, about 70 million years ago.
