This has given rise to the long existing question that if at all dinosaurs roamed around the parts of Asia.

Dayu County is known as the hometown to dinosaurs where the workers were breaking the ground with explosives and a number of black debris of about 2 mm thickness were discovered. Between the oval rocks. 

Immediately after the discovery work at the site were held and the police and other authorities were alerted. The police had sealed the property and the debris.
