GeoJeopardy! Fridays

It is that time again for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because those of us in school need a distraction from Finals Week.

- Official State Dinosaurs & Fossils -

The Triceratops found in this state's Black Hills won official fossil status


Montana's state fossil, the Maiasaura, had this type of mouth, like the platypus


Haddonfield, in this Eastern state, was the site of the first "nearly complete" dinosaur find - a Hadrosaurus

The teeth from Maryland's Astrodon were cut open in 1858 & revealed this pattern, hence its name


Saurophaganax was named this state's official fossil in 2000 & you can see one at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman
