Pre-Historic Paleo Park
Paleo Park has unearthed some of the world’s most reknowned pre-historic finds. And here at this site, the discoveries still keep coming. This dinosaur graveyard was first discovered in 1998, on the remote and beautiful Zerbst Ranch, southwest of Newcastle, Wyoming. It was the late Leonard Zerbst himself, who came upon these amazing finds.
Zerbst had discovered one the most complete specimens of “Triceratops”, the giant horned dinosaur that roamed the land 65-million years ago. Now a pre-historic celebrity, the mounted skeleton of “Kelsey Ann” resides in the Children’s Museuem in Indianapolis.
There have been other stunning finds here near the center of the Lance Creek Fossil Area at Paleo Park. The skull of a mummified Duckbill dinosaur was found here, and now is on display at the Museum of Natural History in New York. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, with perfect skin impressions that have never been seen before, was found here at Paleo Park.
Paleo Park is still a very active site, several nationally-known paleontologists use the ranch for summertime digs. It has proven to be a wealth of ancient history at this incredible gravesite, at Paleo Park.
