T he rain, which all night has drowned out the sounds of soft rock and loud travellers' tales of anacondas from the pizza place next door, is still cascading down out of Rurrenabaque's grey sky when we wake up.

Feathered raptors, grotesque predatory relations of the nice little birdies that warble in gardens, swoop and snarl and tear each to bits.

More than 7,600 dinosaur bones have been found in China, a discovery that could help establish why they died out. The find at Zhucheng, in Shandong province, has become known as "Dinosaur City" as a result of bones uncovered there since the 1960s. It is thought to be the biggest in the world and includes the remains of the predator Tyrannosaurus rex and what is thought to be the largest "duck-billed" dinosaur.
