Washington State Dinosaurs
With all this "Jurassic Park on NBC" hubbub, the local NBC afilliate (KING5
Seattle) has been interviewing a bunch of people (Horner, ILM, etc) involved
with the movie. On Thursday (I think) they said something about Peter Ward
(at the UW) saying that there are probably tons of dinosaurs (Jurassic
probably) in eastern Washington somewhere; just that no one had the incentive
to go over there and look for them. There were supposed to interview him
today, but they didn't (oh well). In any case does anyone know more about
this? I would be very interested to find out if this was the case. If it is
true I would be very interested to see what kind of dinosaurs lived in easern
Washington; if they were Morison-esque or something completely different
(that would REALLY be something).
Anyway, any help would be really cool.
Also... does anyone know if UW teaches paleontology? If they do I would much
rather go in state than out!
