The widest part at the head of this dragon reaches 32 cm, two horns, with a symmetrical shape looming from the widest part and measuring 27 cm.

Other discoveries occurred in the province near a village in Fuyuan, southwestern China on 22 January 2007. Local residents found small dragon fossils that have been attached to the stone slab in a cave on top of a hill.
The farmers in the village has been excavating fossils since 2000 to find the "remnants" of the dragon legend was inspired by the discovery of a dragon on display in Guizhou. The farmers do it to supplement their income by selling these fossils to the researchers.
Previously, to prove the existence of the dragon, Chinese archaeologists conduct excavations since 1983 in several locations believed once occupied by the ancient Chinese civilization. The first excavations conducted around Niuheliang village, at the foot of Red Mountain (Red Mountain). Precisely, located in the valley of the River Liachoe location. Of some of the findings prove, that in this area once occupied a fairly advanced ancient civilization thousands of years ago.
In the first excavation, the archaeologists found two pieces of a dragon-shaped jade. This jade carved finely dragon, green transparent. The first discovery, according to the archaeologists are very valuable. From the evidence it looks civilization thousands of years ago is already familiar with the culture and the engraving is very fine not less beautiful with sculptured results today
Excavation until 2003 that involved dozens of archaeologists from the Research Institute of Lioning Province, and has completed work on 16 websites. They rummaged through the site in the area of ​​1,576 square meters. Dig six graves are the graves of ancient alleged leaders of the future.

From the results of these excavations, found 479 pieces of evidence that lead to the existence of a monster in the form of fossil jaws and other body parts that are considered part of the body of a large snake. Including three pieces of a dragon statue made of delicate jade, which is found from the ancient tombs. It is said that the findings of the jade dragon statue, similar to the findings of the excavations in the village Sanxingtala in 1970. This village in the territory in Monggolia In Cipeng City.
Professor So Bingqi, a renowned archaeologist in China and is the Chairman of the China Association of Archaeologists said the latest findings remains to be investigated further. Especially with the carbon test, to determine the age of ancient animals and reconstruct the entire physical form.
Excavations carried deeper, to look for other fossil parts that could prove, whether it is a reptile fossils or indeed ordinary dragon who allegedly lived a few thousand years younger than the time of ancient animals Dinosaurs, T-Rex, Brontosaurus and ancient animals other.
But of body size, which is smaller than a dinosaur, allegedly finding it indeed is a kind of snake predators. As it is seen from a very sharp fangs that leads to the inside, as well as on other predators found earlier as T-Rex.

Research around the valley of the River Liachoe continued archaeologists, to determine whether this finding was the only evidence or there is still another. It turns out of the archaeologists was not in vain, digging in "Red Mountain Goddess", it found other evidence that supports each other. Similar findings in this location, find some other evidence that corroborates the presence of the dragon.
Both archaeologists and Daahun Bingqi, Task Team members search evidence to conclude the existence of the dragon, a snake that has been mythologized exist. Only if the form was perfect, as depicted in the form of a dragon statue like in a monastery or just plain ancient serpent? All of that is still in question. Archaeologists are still looking for other evidence, and reconstruct it perfectly.
For a while, they managed reconstructing the fossil snake was a kind of ancient animal. It is evident, from the frame of the head that leads to a snake skeleton. It is still not perfect, as some other parts that allegedly form cartilage shape is still vague. But all archaeologists believe, it is a fossil fossils dragons, snakes ancestors now.
Doubts about the actual shape of a dragon, while they agreed to picture dragon sculptures made from thousands of years ago, it allegedly represents the actual shape dragon despite supporting evidence is still detected.
They also agree that the picture is found in the form of jade dragon statue (statue of broken down gold and bronze, was estimated to be over 8,000 years old) is a picture of the original form of the dragon is now living fossil.
In the end, the evidence that dragons ever existed, deserves to be supported by expectations of these animals should be representative of the form of goodness. Because it is not possible, The Chinese worship and other nations because of the good things that have been done by a dragon or "similar animals big snake" to man in times of old.
