Monument to Dinosaurs to Appear in the Kirov Region

The monument to dinosaurs that became extinct almost 250 million years ago will appear next year at the railway station of Kotelnich town of the Kirov Region.
       The bronze sculptural composition depicting two prehistoric pangolins and meeting passengers that arrive at the station is an original way of gratitude of the townspeople to the fossil giants who have glorified Kotelnich.
       The composition will depict a fight of the short-legged slow weed-eater Pareiasaurus with predatory Gorgonopsia. The model of the monument 2 to 2 meters large is ready. The project will cost 1 million roubles. The monument is planned to be set up in such a way that passengers would notice it even from cars of long-distance trains. A small museum exposition telling about paleontological features of the Perm period of a palaeozoic era will be opened on the first floor of the station.
       Kotelnichsky site with remains of prehistoric pangolins that lived in the Perm Period of the Palaeozoic Era is the largest one in the world. Here on a 25-kilometer site along Vyatka River they find complete skeletons and remains of around 20 kinds of vertebrate animals, ancient reptiles and amphibians.
