What fossils could I find on my Colorado ranch?

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a ranch in Pueblo,Colorado. It has some big drainages going threw it, whare I can see many layers. I've already found tons of shells in almost every rock and one Snell shell. What can I expect to find if I'm lucky?

Welcome to the Forum Jared. Show us some fossils and we can give you an idea of what else might be lurking. Fossils sometimes adhere to a guilt by association theme. Let us know what what layers are there.

I guess I didn't take pics of the shells.

According to this website, the area appears to be mostly Cretaceous in age. 

Information here is extremely old, however, and likely no longer accurate.

You could probably find baculites, and more invertebrates. Good luck! Post pics of what you find please!
