This was before the time of dinosaurs and our part of Colorado was covered by a shallow sea. Most of the critters that lived in our ocean back then were small and simple like snails, clams, sea urchins, worms, sponges and corals, but there were also sharks and relatives of the octopus and squid. Some have living descendants and others are completely extinct today. Paul Combs from the Lake George Gem and Mineral Club will be here to answer any questions you may have.
