Virtual Field Trip
VFT: Trekking across the Triassic: The fossils and life in Nevada 240 million years ago!
Come join paleontologists from the outcrops of Triassic exposures in Southern Nevada. Before the Age of Dinosaurs and “Jurassic Park”, Nevada had some odd prehistoric animals roaming the tidal flats in Southern Nevada, while in Central Nevada, some of the world’s largest ichthyosaurs, Shonisaurus popularis, cruised the ancient ocean. Come along on this adventure to see some fossils from the Dawn of the age of Dinosaurs, and learn about Nevada’s prehistoric past.
Thank you Ralph Krauss from Edutainment Learning for co-organizing, moderating, and video editing.
