Hot Spots
Dinosaur bones were reported as early as 1828 from India (Jabalpur) by an army officer called Captain (later General) W. H. Sleeman only four years after the first description of Megalosaurus by William Buckland in 1824. As of 2010 that's 182 years ago and their paleontologists haven't exactly been pulling up trees since... unless you count Bruhathkayosaurus matleyi... which may have really been a tree! However, they have had a steady stream of exciting discoveries.
