This photo is taken from the stunning Ta Prohm Temple located deep in the jungles of Cambodia. This temple is the work of the remarkable Khmer civilization which lasted from around 800 A.D. to 1400 A.D. Unlike most Angkorian temples Ta Prohm has been left in much the same condition in which it was found. The temple is covered with the most intricate of carvings, including very distinct and clear images that seem to depict a Stegosaurus. This would indicate that this creature might well have survived up until the Khmer era in the region. Local experts insist that it is unlikely that these images are a recent addition to the temple. According to conventional science this species existed in North America and died out around 155 million years ago. Villagers in the vicinity of the temple are said to retain traditions of this animal existing until fairly recent times.
