It was first discovered by a team of geologist that found a fossil near a dried up stream called Huay Pratu Tee Mah in Khon Kaen province in 1981. This was a great discovery since Laos had been discovering it own dinosaurs so it was time for Thailand to have it's own.

While scientist were digging, Princess Chakri Sirindhornae came and see the discovery the first dinosaur. So the scientist gave the name Phuwiangosaurus Sirindhornae to honor the princess and the Charkri Dynasty. Phuwiangosaurus use to feed on tall trees that grows variously in the Creatacous Period.
