Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry Named Among 30 Most Impressive Fossil Sites in North America


Press Release

The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry has been named among the 30 most impressive fossil sites in North America by Top Value Reviews. The article was published on the organization’s website in March.

The 30 most impressive fossil sites vary from big national parks, where digs and fossil discovery are just a fraction of everything offered, to full-blown fossil sites, complete with museums, complete skeletons and even digging opportunities for amateurs. Despite their differences, the fossil sites all provide stunning and impressive glimpses into a fascinating prehistoric past.

Located in Elmo, Utah, the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry is one of the world’s foremost dinosaur fossil sources. More than 12,000 individual bones and one dinosaur egg have come from this prolific fossil bed. The Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry is a working quarry where scientists conduct on-going research. Recognized worldwide as the primary source of fossilized bones from the flesh-eating Allosaur, the quarry was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1966.

There are seemingly dozens of fossil sites in Utah, but the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry is definitely one of the most impressive. The site, which is run by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, boasts the largest collection of Jurassic Era bones ever found. The quarry has proven an especially impressive fossil site for the skeletons of Allosaurus, a big flesh-eating dinosaur with a large skull and massive teeth. The quarry also includes a museum and very well done ranger-led hikes. Read more about the quarry at the following link:
