some more Wyoming dinosaurs

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 🙂
