Flaming Cliffs (Djadokhta) Formation Diorama

Recommended Posts

Clanjones

I am currently working on a diorama/sculpture featuring a Pinacosaurus, some Protoceratops, and maybe a Velociraptor or alvarezsaur. From what I understand from the papers I have read, the Djadokhta formation was a semi-arid to arid biome, but I can't find any information on what kind of vegetation would have been present at that time.  Does anyone  have any insight on what kind of plant life you would expect to see in a Cretaceous desert?

 

Thanks in advance. Progress pics coming soon.

Looking forward to see it.

UPDATE

The Pinacosaurus model is almost done.

Apparently several individuals are known, including juveniles, but it is difficult to find good pictures of the fossils. The scute pattern isn't really known, so I took inspiration from the beautifully preserved scutes of Zuul crurivastator.

 

Materials:

Kato Polyclay

aluminum foil and wire armature

I don't think there are any fossil plants form the Djadochta.  So we know nothing.
