The Gobi also draws packs of paleontologists and archaeologists who love nothing better than to dig around in the desert in search of buried bones and remnants of cultures long past. This vast desert is a veritable dinosaur graveyard, with some fossilized remains lying only inches from the surface. In the 1920s and 30's a caravan of scientists from the American Museum of Natural History in New York City journeyed into the unknown heart of Mongolia’s Gobi desert on five expeditions. They endured dust storms, breakdowns, skirmishes with bandits and returned with a bounty of mammal and dinosaur fossils including dinosaur eggs.

- You'll observe herds of grazing antelope, a wide variety of birds and groups of wild camels and donkeys,
- You'll see many areas where dinosaur fossils and eggs might be found. Protoceratops, Tarbosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex wandered in the south Gobi some 30 million years ago.
