If you love your Wyoming history, you'll want to see something that was just shared by the Smithsonian.

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History just shared this ancient crocodile egg that was found in Wyoming on Facebook.

When I first saw it, I thought it was a geode. I'll trust the scientific minds at the Smithsonian that swear this is a really old crocodile egg.

If this type of find interests you, it's worth digging deeper (see what we did there?) and follow the Wyoming Archaeological Society as this is just the tip of the iceberg for the type of fossils they find in our state.

The idea of crocodiles in Wyoming frankly surprised me since I think of Florida when crocodiles come to mind. But, the brainy people at Harvard have stated that Wyoming was crawling (literally) with crocodiles 50 million years ago. Go figure.
