This American paleontologist's first discovery of dinosaur remains here in the early 1920s made the Gobi Desert famous as an enormous natural dinosaur cemetery. The harsh climate and remoteness of the desert have naturally preserved the relics of prehistoric life, and the discoveries found here reveal myriads of strange creatures. Unique findings include two huge, fully preserved skeletons of Tarbozaurus, the largest dinosaur ever known and dinosaur eggs with the embryos inside.

An amazing spot in the midst of the dunes is little lake called Lake Adag. Another phenomenon is a little spring, containing considerable amounts of chemicals, which flows out into a green meadow near the sand dunes.
