Finally, short before end of last year, MICHEL issued their 1st "DINOS" catalog. It is quite interesting, they include not only dinosaurs and prehistoric animals, but also some extinct animals, but fossils not included. They also include 2 cave painting stamps of France and 3 fossils found places of Canada. Anyway, it is quite useful for topical collectors.

The image is from archosaurmusings.wordpress.com.Shantungosaurus, meaning "Shandong Lizard", is a genus of saurolophine hadrosaurid dinosaurs who lived in Late Cretaceous perid (100-65 million years ago) on the territory od modern China. There are only one species of the dinosaur - Shantungosaurus giganteus, the largest Hadrosaur known to date. It was up to 17 meters long and have weighed as much as 16 tonnes.
First described in 1973, Shantungosaurus is known from over five incomplete skeletons. Chinese scientist Xing Xu and his colleagues indicate that Shantungosaurus is very similar to and shares many unique characters with Edmontosaurus, forming a Asian node of Edmontosaurus–Shantungosaurus clade, based on the new materials recovered in Shandong.
