You’ll Never Believe What Used To Exist In This Massive Desert In Texas

Big Bend is easily the most breathtaking natural wonder in Texas. Its mountains extend seemingly up to the heavens, and its vastness is almost mystical. Easy as it may be to assume something this magnificent has always existed, that isn’t the case. Scientists have recently discovered something unbelievable about Big Bend’s past, and you’re about to find out what it is.

If you want to learn more about Big Bend’s interesting past, a Fossil Discovery Exhibit featuring life-sized replicas and real fossils is debuting next month. You can find more information on that here.

What do you think about this? Can you believe the driest place in Texas used to be a lush rainforest? I sure would’ve loved to see it.
