In the summer of 2010, 7 year old junior ranger Kylie Ferguson discovered a saber tooth cat fossil while exploring the Badlands National Park in South Dakota with her family.

This PowerPoint has several real photographs of:

  • Kylie, the 7 year old girl who found the amazing fossil
  • the importance of leaving fossils alone and telling a park ranger
  • the unique Badlands topography where the fossils were found
  • digging at the fossil site
  • excavating the fossils
  • putting a plaster jacket around the fossil to protect it
  • removing the rock around the fossil
  • preparing fossils in the lab
  • the museum quality fossil of saber tooth cat
