New Fossils For Sale - Tortoises

We have just added two large fossil tortoises  (Stylemys nebracensis)

These prehistoric land tortoises roamed what is now South Dakota about 30 million years ago in an area known as the White River Badlands. Today the badlands are a series of highly eroded hills and gullies of light colored sedimentary layers. Stylemys has considerable scientific importance, since it was the first species of fossil tortoise to be discovered and described in North America.
