This statues inspiration is based on a dinosaur fossils specimen that research lead by Dr. Lida Xing in 2017.
Lufengosaurus huenei is a Lower Jurassic sauropod, lived in Yunnan Province, China. Lufengosaurus was a herbivore, around 6 metres in length and weighing a little under 2 tonnes.
When the dinosaur was excavated in 1997, there was a pathological abnormality on one of the right ribs of the animal. Viewed from the side, there is a concave section of missing bone which cuts almost halfway through the rib. We diagnosed a process called osteomyelitis, which in this case had produced an abscess inside the bone. Osteomyelitis is a severe infection originating in the bone marrow, usually resulting from the introduction of pyogenic (pus-producing) bacteria into the bone. Pathogens enter the bone via the bloodstream, or through open wounds or fractures.
What is interesting is that this case gives us evidence of interaction between a sauropod and aggressive predators living at that time.We do not know which species of predator caused the bite, but the wound from the failed attack is a smoking gun. It is possible that Sinosaurus triassicus, a well-known predator found in Jurassic Yunnan, would have been able to attack Lufengosaurus.
