Life, Death in a Cretaceous Coastal Swamp
University of Wisconsin-Parkside Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Chris Noto is ready to take you down to the swamp. A paleontologist who studies vertebrates--especially dinosaurs--from the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic Era (approximately 145.5-65.5 million years ago), talks about the new fossil location in Dallas during a program Wednesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. in Kenosha's Dinosaur Discovery Museum.
Called the "Arlington Archosaur Site," it contains many fossils of sharks, fish, amphibians, lizards, turtles, and dinosaurs. But the star among them is a new species of giant crocodile with evidence that it crunched turtles and ate dinosaurs!View the life reconstructions of these animals and listen to dramatic stories of life and death in a 100-million-year-old coastal swamp where if the predators didn't get you, the wildfires would!
