Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park, near Plainview, Nebraska

Some 12 million years ago, this area of Nebraska’s grasslands became covered with up to two feet of ash from a volcano in southern Idaho. While local animals survived the ashfall itself, they soon perished from eating ash-covered grass. Their skeletons were found in what was once an ancient watering hole, now the site of a remarkable archeological dig.

Scientists have uncovered more than 200 fossil skeletons, including barrel-bodied rhinos (in 1992, they discovered a rhino cow with a calf positioned nose to nose), a giraffe-like camel called Aepycamelus, sabre-toothed deer, five species of horses, a raccoon dog, a Secretary Bird, and a giant tortoise.
