Major Find at Dinosaur Quarry
Scientists working at one of Utah’s major dinosaur quarries, the Hanksville-Burpee Dinosaur Quarry, found 60-70 new bones this spring, including a 20 foot long neck bone. Many of the bones found are from sauropod skeletons like Diplodocus, Camarasaurus and possibly Apatosaurus.
These finds indicate the dig site will likely be a major producer of fossil remains for many years to come. It is believed that the site contains remains washed into the area by an ancient stream. For more information about the dig, check out the Burpee Museum of Natural History’s blog.
