Japan is a country with a rich natural history. Not surprisingly, it also had its own dinosaurs. Japan's dinosaur fossil record consists of about 30 specimens, most of which come from northern Honshu and Hokkaido. These are some of the most notable Japanese dinosaurs:

Fukuiraptor kitamuroorum: This small carnivore was a distant relative of the velociraptor.
Fukuititan nipponensis: A sauropodomorph that lived in the Early Cretaceous period.

FAQ

What did Japanese dinosaurs look like?

Japanese dinosaurs resembled dinosaurs from other countries. They had different shapes, sizes and appearances, but were still part of a family known as Dinosauria.

Why are there so few Japanese dinosaurs?

Japanese fossils have been difficult to find because they are buried deep in high-pressure rocks that are difficult for scientists to access. It is likely that there will be more discoveries over time.
