This oil painting by Utah artist, Gale Hammond, is his interpretation of dinosaur life at the Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry 147.5 million years ago. A large Allosaur looks on, while a second predator attacks a Camptosaur. Notice the vegetation and a ponderous sauropod dinosaur wading the shallow lake in the background. Few dinosaur Paleontologists now agree that sauropods spent much time swimming or wading, thereby risking getting mired in the mud of or adjacent to shallow bodies of water.
