During those years my family lived in this stark and beautiful region, my dad would bring me bits of petrified dinosaur skeleton he found near rig locations where he worked. These bones-turned-stones gripped my imagination until I added a dinosaur tooth and a dinosaur coprolite or fossilized doo to my rock collection.</p><p> Mon, 09 Sep 2013 19:30:00 +0000 Karen Madorin 21069 at http://hppr.org Miniature Dinosaurs on My Hilltop First Carnivore Dinosaur Tooth Found at Black Mesa http://hppr.org/post/first-carnivore-dinosaur-tooth-found-black-mesa <p></p><p>Black Mesa is the highest point in Oklahoma.&nbsp; Its name comes from a layer of black volcanic rock that coated the mesa 10 million years ago.&nbsp; Located in the northwest corner of the panhandle, it's where <a href="http://www.universityherald.com/articles/3879/20130715/ecu-professor-discovers-dinosaur-tooth-fossil-oklahoma-panhandle.htm"><strong>The University Herald</strong></a> says Dr. Mark Micozzi found a tooth from the largest land-dwelling carnivores- theropods.&nbsp; Tue, 16 Jul 2013 05:01:02 +0000 Cindee Talley 18836 at http://hppr.org First Carnivore Dinosaur Tooth Found at Black Mesa
