China has shaken the world of paleontology to its very foundation. Over the past few decades, more dinosaurs have been discovered there than anywhere else on earth. Chinese paleontologists have also proven a direct connection between dinosaurs and birds, rewriting what we know about evolution.

On this month’s ‘On China’, CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout is at the Paleozoological Museum of China with the country’s top dinosaur hunters and the International Editor of Science Magazine to explore the world of dinosaur expedition in China, and the unique challenges confronting paleontologists today in this country on the fast track to urbanization.
