Ammonite 1

In 1902 a scientist with the U. S. Geological Survey visited Fossil Hill on the eastern flank of the Humboldt Range, Pershing County, Nevada, and discovered a remarkable fossil bed. James P. Smith noted: “… the hillside was literally covered with loose ammonites that had been set free from the matrix by the work of frost.” The story of these extraordinary ammonites is told in The Extreme Ammonites of Fossil Hill updated March 13, 2014.
