Great new exhibit. Amazing that this part of the country was a seashore with dinosaurs roaming and flying above.

The fossil bone exhibit is just off the Persimmon Gap Entrance Road north of the Panther Junction Visitors Center. The display shows several fossil bones that were found here. This parking area is also the trailhead for an alternate trail to the Banta Shutin, by following Tornillo Creek downstream.
