Fawaz Al-Azki
Vertebrates fossils from Jurassic and Cretaceous deposits in Syrian coastal range are the first clear evidence of dinosaurs from Syria. Egg of dinosaurs in Besmalekh Village and impression of indeterminate carnivore dinosaur embryo fossils were discovered in a cherty layer in Middle Cenomanian marine Bab Abdallah formation in Alamoud Village, north of coastal range. These two discoveries affirmed that Syria was home for dinosaurs in Mesozoic time and add important record to scarce dinosaur fossils in the Levant Region.
