The ninth episode of China Untold is now available to download or stream online.

For this week’s episode, let’s take a trip, a journey through time if you will, and turn the clocks back a whopping 66 million years to the time right before a massive asteroid slammed into Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and ended the reign of the dinosaurs.  

Our region of focus is modern-day Ganzhou, a prefecture-level city in southern Jiangxi province, near the boundaries with Fujian and Guangdong provinces. 

Among the diverse array of organisms that called the area home during the Late Cretaceous was a carnivorous beast that has changed the way researchers view the iconic Tyrannosaur family: Qianzhousaurus sinensis, more comically known as ‘Pinocchio rex.’
