Fossils of prehistoric dinosaurs’ species, once roamed across the world, have been handed over to the National Museum of Science and Technology (NMST) in the capital’s Agargoan area on Tuesday.

A Canadian expatriate Jobayer bin Sarwar handed over about 300 species of Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian, Carboniferous and Persian fossils to NMST Director General (DG) Muhammad Munir Chowdhury, said a press release.

These fossils include teeth, footprints, egg parts, bone marrow of dinosaur, ammonites and snails and oysters. The fossils collected from 30 countries around the world will be displayed in Biology Gallery of the museum according to geological chronology.
