Geologist: Prehistoric reptile left a trail in the Grand Canyon


LAS VEGAS – A professor of geology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas recently reported traces of reptiles along a popular road in the Grand Canyon National Park as reported by a newspaper.

Professor Steve Rowland said that the pieces belong to the primitive reptile of the size of a baby crocodile and that it is a theory that dates back about 315 million years.
