Reptile Fossils

OPB | Feb. 14, 2008 12:30 p.m.

Sixty amateur paleontologists established the North American Research Group to promote responsible fossil gathering. The team works with experts and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to advance their work. They have already found rare aquatic reptile remains embedded in central Oregon: a Jurassic crocodile and a plesiosaur. Now the group is out to make history again as they hunt for dinosaurs.
