Digging Dinosaurs

The big dig

Me and Timmy with big daggers

160,000 million years ago there was a flood just north of Hulett Wyoming. It washed a bunch of big ol dead and bloated dinos into an area where our favorite carnivores the Allosaurus had a snack!

In July, The Black Hills Institute of Paleontology welcomes volunteers every summer to dig dinos at the Waugh Quarry. Thanks to Pete Larson and his brilliant crew, we all had a terrific time and everyone found something worth talking about!
