Fossils of 200 Million Year Old Creature Found in Quay County

The remains of a dinosaur-like creature that lived in our area nearly 200 million years ago have been discovered.

Researchers at Mesalands Community College in Tucumcari have uncovered three hip bones belonging to a unidentified creature that lived in the Tucumcari area during the Triassic period.

The creature has dinosaur-like features, but pre-dates the dinosaur era.

The fossils were recently discovered in a rocky part in Quay County, New Mexico.
