This month, a team from Shillong-based geologist Bashisha Yegrai identified fossils of Sauropod dinosaur bones of the nearly 100 million-year-old Titansaurian origin in the western Khasi Hills region of Meghalaya. The special feature of the study was that it was the first female team of the Geological Survey of India (GSI).
According to Bashisha, this is the first record of sauropods found in the Meghalaya region. Basisha Yegrei, a member of the research team, said the discovery made Meghalaya the fifth state in the country to have dinosaur fossils.
Earlier, dinosaur fossils were also found in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh. “Our team’s discovery has attracted the attention of the world in the Khasi Hills, which is a matter of pride for us,” Basisha said.
