A dinosaur butt found near the Colorado/Utah border has changed the way we look at their history in our neck of the woods.

The 200-Million-Year-Old fossil identified as the oldest dinosaur bone found in the State of Utah, was the topic of a forum Friday at Dinosaur Journey in Fruita. It highlighted the what that fossil helped identify about how the world looked during the Late Triassic Period.

"This Fossil not only helps us understand what dinosaurs were around during this period but also how dinosaurs rose to dominance during the Mesozoic era," said Rob Gay, Colorado Canyons Association.
