St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site
You can't see it now, but 200 million years ago this area was a freshwater paradise where all sorts of lifeforms made their way. The wetness allowed for loads of mud and as dinosaurs weighing thousands of pounds trekked through the viscous ooze, they left giant footprints as a testament to their existence. Silt and sand filled in these impressions, hardening and preserving them. Today, we know these footprints, tail drags, and burrowing marks were probably made by two different dinosaurs - Megapnosaurus and Dilophosaurus. The trace fossils tell us much about these animals - how they moved, behaved, ate, and lived. Learn more about these prehistoric creatures at this fascinating museum.
