Three-Toed Horse Fossil on Display in Wyoming

If you are anywhere near Kemmerer, Wyo., you might want to check out the cast of "the most complete fossilized 'dawn horse' ever found" at Jim Tynsky's fossil shop starting Dec. 11. The replica is courtesy of the Field Museum of Chicago, Ill., who borrowed Tynsky's three-toed horse fossil to make casts for themselves for display and study, and they also made casts for Tynsky to display in his shop.

Tynsky holds commercial fossile digs at his quarry, allowing visitors to pay to find common fossils such as Diplomystus and Priscacara fish, and crocodile, turtle, and stingray fossils.
