List of Articles about the Morrison Formation

The Morrison Formation of western North America is my favorite geological / paleontological formation to study. Within these rock layers, which are dated to the late Jurassic Period from approximately 155 to 145 million years ago, are found the fossils of some of the most famous dinosaurs known, such as Allosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Diplodocus. However, dinosaurs were not the only animals which lived here. This was a vibrant ecosystem home to all kinds of fish, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals.

Since I set up this website in 2013, I have written several articles concerning the animals which lived in the Morrison Formation. It can be a bit difficult for me to keep track of what I’ve already written about and what I haven’t yet, so I’ve decided to compile all of my articles here into a comprehensive list. That way, it’s easy for myself and indeed anybody to quickly use this as a reference guide to look up info about the animals of late Jurassic North America.
