On-Site At The Prida Formation Fossil Locality, Nevada

A fossil seeker explores the famous Middle Triassic Prida Formation in Nevada; the view here is slightly north of west. Amateur and commercial ammonoid collectors "rediscovered" this specific world-class fossil locality roughly 15 years ago. Since then, tons of ammonoid-bearing limestones have been yanked from this isolated spot in the Great Basin Desert of Nevada. Commercial collecting is of course illegal here on Public Lands, and should the activity continue unabated, rest assured that the Bureau of Land Management will permanently close the site to all but trained scientists with a degree from an accredited university.
