[F] Como Bluff - Wyoming - US
Wyoming - US
One of the most renowned dinosaur collecting areas in the world is Como Bluff in the northern part of the Laramie Basin, in southeastern Wyoming. Como Bluff is a roughly east-west trending anticline plunging to the west, with a dipping southern limb and a steeply dipping northern limb. Como Bluff is approximately 15 km long and 1.5 km wide. The southern limb (Como Ridge) of this breached anticline is capped by a highly resistant sandstone of the Cretaceous Cloverly Formation.
Beautiful exposures of the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation crop out beneath the Cloverly Formation cap rock on the north face of Como Ridge. The marine Jurassic [Sundance Formation] and some of the Triassic red beds are also exposed. The fossil vertebrate fauna from Como Bluff is dominated by large herbivorous dinosaurs. Five types of sauropods (Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, Camarasaurus, Pleurocoelus and Barosaurus) have been identified from Como Bluff. Other herbivores were Stegosaurus, Camptosaurus, Laosaurus, Othnielia, Drinker and Dryosaurus. The carnivores Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Ornitholestes and Coelurus.
