The dinosaur fossil discovery was made during an excavation by the Burpee Musuem of Natural History near Hanksville, Utah in a quarry.

The fossils are believed to be 150 million years old and are from different dinosaur skeletons

In total, 4 long-necked sauropods, two carnivorous dinosaurs, and a herbivorous Stegosaurus were found among the fossils.

The hope is that this discovery could lead to far more knowledge about dinosaurs in this time period, their climate, etc.

The site will close in January but will re-open next year for further excavation.
