Some Of Best Preserved Fossils In the World Are Right Here In Wyoming

The proof of that can be found at Fossil Butte. Discovered in the 1870s even before Wyoming was incorporated as a territory, the limestone layers that make up the butte have been fascinating geologists, paleontologists, and the general public for centuries. It’s a treasure-trove of some of the most well-preserved fossils in the entire world.
