We didn’t find much in the Aathal Museum’s Dana Quarry part this summer, but there are abundant finds still to make. Some finds from within the quarry I showed earlier; today I’ll show you a find made on the same farm, only a few hundreds of meters away.
an articulated forelimb of a brachiosaurid dinosaur from the lowest Morrison Formation near Ten Sleep, WY
In this area there are a lot of small hills where the Morrison forms the top, protecting the softer underlying sediments from erosion – and these small patches of the Morrison are all covered in bone fragments. There will be many more fossils to study in the future 🙂
