Holbrook in Navajo County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
What happened to the animals of the Triassic? Did their disappearance allow the dinosaurs – which were then just appearing – to ascend to dominance? Through the study of fossils such as those found here, scientists hope to solve the mystery of the Triassic speciesí disappearance and find clues to explain other “mass extinctions” that have occurred through time.
