About This Piece

Stegosaurus Snacks
Dinosaur National Monument 
145 million years ago

Mysterious landscapes covered with fern-like bennetite bushes and full-size tree ferns were home to some of the largest animals ever to walk the planet—right here in Colorado. Stegosaurus and many other dinosaurs once browsed this pan-flat terrain.

The Morrison Formation was named for the town of Morrison, Colorado, where dinosaurs were discovered in 1877. But the big find came in 1909 with the discovery of a magnificent outcrop full of dinosaur bones in northwestern Colorado, now on display at Dinosaur National Monument. Fossil leaves complete the picture of Jurassic-Period Colorado.
