Paleontologists have uncovered the remains of mammoths, giant sloths, ancient horses, bison, American lions, and many other species that existed in Nevada after the ancient seas dried up.

There are hundreds of lo- cations where these treasures can. In the backcountry wilds of Nevada occur two truly classic Early Triassic ammonoid localities.

Both sites yield innumerable beautifully preserved ammonoids--an extinct order of cephalopod--in what geologists, stratigraphers and fossil cephalopod researchers all call the Lower Triassic Thaynes Formation, roughly million years old, deposited near the beginning of the Mesozoic Era only three.

Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, (2) COLBERT, E. A number of fossil expedition areas operate in the area, taking full advantage of the myriad bones and teeth of animals like ancient mammoths, mastodons, camels, sloths, horses, tortoises, jaguars, saber-tooth cats, capybaras, armadillos, whales, dolphins, and sharks that once called this.

The remains of fossil fishes comprising three species were found in the Cache Formation in Lake County, Calif. The rocks containing the fossils are considered to be late Pliocene or early Pleistocene. The species are all freshwater and primarily quiet-water types that now live in Clear Lake and the waters of the surrounding area, suggesting continuity between the present lake and a lake.
