I haven't posted any dino images here in a while, thought I should change that. This might be a scene on the western side of the North American Interior Seaway in what is now Wyoming and what paleontologists call Larimidia. Through most of the Cretaceous period, North America was split in half by a shallow sea. At its peak it reached the arctic circle down to the Gulf of Mexico (The Tethys Sea) and from Eastern Wyoming to Arkansas. The edges varied a bit and at the highest point the sea reached the Atlantic through southern Canada.
However it was still plenty hot and dry in a lot of areas and these guys are making their way to wetter lands near the seaway as a long drought takes it's toll on the uplands.
Thanks for stopping by.

Some strange and nasty beasts have done some stomping in the past. Here in the east there are many sea critter fossils... ;->

I always feel like I'm in a time machine when I see your cool creations.

I see that they are being stalked by a carnivore whose eyes are bigger than his brain. One swat by those tails and he'll be flying like a Lacross ball. Great scene

If we don't start fixing things, it may look like this again, only without those magnificent creatures. Outstanding work on this, Art!
Earlier in the spring I thought that inland sea was coming back!
