Description

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone is a new exhibition that features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections. Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals.
