About this Image
This wallpaper shows Badlands National Park in South Dakota, which contains the world’s richest Oligocene epoch fossil beds—dating 37-28 million years old. Ancient mammals such as the rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed here. The park’s 244,000 acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live today.
