The Associated Press article states:
Animal burrows and petrified tree trunks 6 feet in diameter
were found
nearby. The site doesn't contain any new species but
offers scientists the
chance to learn more about the ecology of that time, said
Scott Foss, a BLM

Regarding "animal burrows," Evelyn Sobielski
[koreke77@yahoo.de] writes:


The site's sandstone also encases freshwater clams,
petrified trees, and
other preserved matter. "There is potential that there
could be burrows that
contain fossil mammals. We have petrified logs -- a whole
group of things
that I think are going to tell us something very detailed
about this
environment," (Matthew) Bonnan (of Western Illinois
University) said.

So there _may_ be burrows there.
