The Ruyang or Huanghetitan ruyangensis may have been a new discovery for paleontologists in China, but the residents of Shaping Village had used its fossil bones for decades in traditional medicines. The community believed that the bones belonged to a flying dragon and had healing properties. Because of this, paleontologists have only been able to recover 40 percent of its remains.
