Morocco is well-known for its Kem Kem Jurassic Park, where scientists managed to find an impressive collection of fossil bones. Four large-bodies of theropods, as well as large-bodies of crocodilians and pterosaurs, are only a few of the numerous examples. A recently published story about the evolution of this place was thoroughly researched by Dr. Nizar Ibrahim and his researchers’ team from the University of Detroit Mercy.

The primary focus of this study was to provide an in-depth analysis of the fossils and the rocks in the region. The monograph correctly includes the paleontology and geology of this widely-known area, that was not adequately researched. The paper illustrates how the life of the massive dinosaurs, the insects, and the plants used to be 95 million years ago.

The Kem Kem Jurassic Park in Morocco and its oasis of fossils

Most of the discoveries of fossils were made through commercial fossil collection campaigns. It is the first time that research is showing the exact location where the most impressive findings in the world were found. The authors of the study even made a series of expeditions in the area to get a better understanding of the Kem Kem region.

The Kem Kem region has provided humanity with the most massive known dinosaurian predators in the world, having a length of more than 12 meters. Unfortunately, only four of all the skeletons discovered managed to be recovered by the anthropologists. The fossil dinosaurs include Rebbachisaurus characterized by its impressive long neck, Deltadromeu agilis, Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, and Carcharodontosaurus saharicus.

The authors of the study have declared that there are many more specimens hidden in the Kem Kem Jurassic Park region that will soon be discovered and analyzed. The research will bring dinosaurs, as well as a species of actinopterygian fish, insects, and plants. Consequently, the Kem Kem region is prone to provide a series of discoveries that will allow in-depth research of the old life.
