|The Hanksville dig site used to be an ancient river, and when dinosaurs would die the carcasses would be washed down the river and deposited along its banks.|
Now some 147 million years later scientists and volunteers from the Burpee Museum are unearthing them.
|The fossils date to the late Jurassic period and are mostly made up of Sauropods, the long neck dinosaurs. A very rare armored dinosaur called Mymoorapelta was discovered, one of 8 specimens ever found. |
