A 160-million-year-old visitor draws people's curiosity at Cityplaza in Taikoo Shing. The dinosaur skeleton is one of eight that went on display yesterday for a month, along with fossilised plant and animal specimens.

The skeletons, on loan from the Beijing Natural History Museum and Sichuan Zigong Dinosaur Museum, range in length from 30cm to 26 metres.

The treasures include the Omeisaurus tianfuensis, which is 10 metres tall and the second-largest dinosaur fossil in Asia, and the Huayangosaurus taibaii, the oldest intact stegosaurus fossil ever found.
