The second category includes the volcanic--sedimentary rocks of lava type, radiolarites, pelagic lime stones, flysch and turbidities that are belong to a time span from upper Triassic to upper Cretaceous
and have been formed after Pridotites.
A large number of mostly tiny bits of dinosaur bones were recovered in groups at four locations within the Utah park - which paleontologists and geologists know as the Upper Cretaceous
(Campanian) Kaiparowits Formation - leading paleontologists to believe that crocodyliforms had fed on baby dinosaurs 1-2 meters in total length.
