Did you ever dream of being a Paleontologists? I know I did. Even if someday my job would be replaced by technology that would bring the dinos back to life, then the dinos eat all the humans. No biggie. Dreams die a painful death when you realize most Paleontologists work at a university and might get to dig a couple of months a year (if they are lucky). Over the years, the United States has been home to thousands of fossil dig sites. I picked one of the best fossil formations to try my luck. I went fossil hunting equipped with the best tactical pants and tools in Badlands National Park, South Dakota.
