Construction workers in Thornton accidentally stumbled upon a super rare dinosaur fossil.

Construction workers working on the new Public Safety Facility in Thornton found a rare triceratops skeleton and skull Friday The find is one of three triceratops skulls found along the Front Range and has likely been laying there for at least million years.

The earliest published reports about the geology of Colorado’s front range described the horizon in which Triceratops fossil remains occurred as being at the very top, the latest, of the Cretaceous period. One old report even suggested that some were in the lowest Eocene, though I am sure that finding has been lost or revised.
