Fossil Lake existed roughly 52 million years ago in what is now Southwestern Wyoming, Northeastern Utah and Northwestern Colorado. This was the period of time just after the fall of the dinosaurs, and during the great rise of the mammals.
So far paleontologists have uncovered at least 7 species of turtles that lived in Fossil Lake, some reaching nearly 6 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! The smallest of the turtles reached no more than 6 inches and their ranges extended up and down the streams and tributaries of the lake.
