Mr. Lim Vanchan, Director of the Office of the һeгіtаɡe Area Department, General Department of Local Communities, said on March 9, 2021 that the foѕѕіɩѕ are 70 cm long and 20 cm wide. Mr. Lim Vanchan added that this may be the first animal bone foѕѕіɩѕ found in Cambodia and appear in the sandstone layer of the island. According to geological maps, the area dates back to the *Cretaceous/late Jurassic period (65 million -190 million years), meaning that it could be associated with animals that lived during the dinosaurs’ lifetime.
