Video: Fossil Hunting in Kansas

Travel in Kansas isn’t always what you expect. Eighty million years ago, this rural American state was an inland sea filled with huge fish, swimming birds and reptiles.

Gigantic meat-eaters called mosasaurs ruled the ocean. The remains of the animals that swam and flew during this era were remarkably preserved in the rich farmlands of Kansas.

Head out with professional fossil hunters in Kansas to uncover some of this unusual past for yourself. Many other well-preserved fossils are on display at several attractions in Kansas.
