Big Bend Fossil Exhibit

If you happen to be in the area during your travels checkout the Big Bend Fossil Exhibit in the Big Bend National Park. We came upon the Fossil Discovery exhibit about 8 miles from Panther Junction in an open air pavillian. Also there is a short trail with geologic points of interest that overlooks the area. In this photo you have an large room with a T-Rey bronze cast head of a Tyrannosaurus Rex which ruled the land and a Deinosuchus, a giant alligator or terrible crocodile head as it was called which probably ate T-Rex should he get too close to the waters edge and to cover the sky we had a flying reptile named Xiphactinus with a wing span of 36 feet. The fossil exhibit contains many other creature which were part of the inland sea for exhibit and was opened to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016. It is the first addition to the park in 50 years at a cost of 1.4 million dollars. Also the fossil exhibit is fully accessible with a nearby picnic area and fossil themed play area for children.
