So, you've likely seen me post about my little Safari Ltd. Postosuchus toy. As I traveled out to Petrified Forest this summer, I took a series of photos of the little guy, searching for his home. Below are some of my favorites, complete with geologic context.
By the way, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts. Internet has been problematic.
|Postosuchus searches for home, but finds himself in the Ordovician Manitou Limestone at Cave of the Winds.|
|Still searching, Postosuchus ends up in the Paleoproterozoic Routt Granite of Royal Gorge.|
|Oops! Went too far and ended up in the Cretaceous Dakota Shale.|
|Getting closer, Postosuchus checks out Delicate Arch in the Jurassic Entrada Sandstone of Arches National Park, UT|
|He finally made it! See here in the Rainbow Forest Museum of Petrified Forest NP, situated in the Triassic Chinle Formation.|
