|Is there more than just loose soil and scattered rocks here? Move your cursor over the image to see the cross-sections of two fossils. We often find turtles in close proximity. We don't yet know why.|
|The sizes of turtles vary. Some would fit in the palm of your hand. Others, like this one, would fill a wheelbarrow.|
|Fossil poaching is a problem at Toadstool Park. At the researcher's feet is a depression where a turtle fossil has been illegally removed. The information this turtle could have provided to the scientists has been lost forever.|
|Some turtles are found to be completely "exploded."|
|Occasionally turtles are found intact and make their way into a museum display.|
