The Mystical Places In Indiana Where Prehistoric Beasts Once Roamed
There’s something about learning the natural history of where you live that’s ridiculously interesting. It’s quite a privilege to be able to essentially travel back in time to learn about various critters that used to live on the grounds we do today thanks to modern science. Did you know that there are no dinosaur fossils that have been found in Indiana to date? It’s unlikely that they didn’t live here, but interestingly, Indiana has very few remnants of rock and sediment from the Mesozoic era – where any dinos who did call our state home would likely be found – to go through. There have been several discoveries, however, of some truly intriguing creatures that did roam the land, for sure, eons ago. Despite the lack of dinosaurs, there was still plenty of prehistoric life in Indiana that we can study today.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
