Big Bone Lick State Park Poster
Big Bone Lick State Historic Site is one of the most scientifically important sites in American history, that most people have never even heard of. These wetlands, nestled in a bend just a few miles from the shores of the Ohio River, in Boone County, Kentucky is the birthplace of modern vertebrate paleontology on the North American continent. Vertebrate paleontology is the subfield of paleontology that seeks to discover, through the study of fossilized remains, the behavior, reproduction, and appearance of extinct animals with vertebrae. Pictured above is the Woolly Mammoth, one of many extinct species found roaming the salt licks surrounding Big Bone Lick!
