Ichthyosaurs, giant reptiles up to 60 feet long, once roamed the sea that covered western Nevada during the Triassic Period about 200 million years ago. From a painting by Larry Jacox. In 1977, the Nevada State Legislature enacted a law making the icthyosaur the State's official fossil. The bones of these ancient sea creatures have been found at many places in the Berlin-Ichthyosaur State Park, and can be viewed by visitors. For more information see Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology Special Publication 5, child of the Rocks, on sale at the Park or by NBMG.
