First Ever Set of Dinosaur Tracks Discovered in Nevada

The last thing one might expect to see near Las Vegas, Nevada would be 190 million year old dinosaur footprints. So, when paleontologists recently discovered tracks in the Red Rock Canyon, they were shocked! These ancient findings bring a new light to “a city where decades-old casinos are treated as relics,” according to an article from the Los Angeles Times. Being that the tracks are off of a difficult two-hour hike and look like nothing more than just ripples and scuffs, it is no wonder that they were never noticed. However, the finding is certainly important and monumental for the state of Nevada.

Read more about this exciting discovery at the Los Angeles Times.
