Last weekend in Big Water, Utah, the BLM [Bureau of Land Management] presented some recent paleontologic finds from the nearby Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument [GSENM]. The Utah Geological Survey online publication 'Survey Notes' for January 2001 [1.4Mb PDF format file] provides a good introduction to fossil discoveries in the area. We were particularly interested in the recent fossil hadrosaur, otherwise known as the duck billed dinosaur.
We visited Charlie & Florence Magovern at their StoneCompany.com web site, where they have a range of museum quality dinosaur egg replicas. On the hadrosaur page you may see today's feature  picture and a close up  image. For a look into the Magoverns' world we recommend the Baby Louie story in the 'Hatch' section of a National Geographic Dinosaur Eggs online presentation, .
