About This Project
Northwestern Colorado is rich in understudied fossil bearing strata. We have been working on an undescribed hadrosaur from the Mesa Verde Formation, but have the potential to expand our purview to an area that exhibits a remarkable display of continuous Mesozoic deposits. Our previous discoveries display unusually well-preserved soft tissue and further specimens are needed to create a complete picture of the diversity and taphonomy of the local Mesozoic fauna.
