Fun and interesting facts about Bolivia for kids, teens, teachers and parents

Prehistoric Bolivia must have been a very fascinating (and scary) place. The fossils and tracks of nearly 300 prehistoric mammals and dinosaurs have been found in Bolivia, including one of the largest finds of dinosaur prints, located in Sucre, Bolivia where 5055 tracks belonging to at least 8-15 species of terapods including sauropods, titanosaurs, terapods, ornithopods, hadrosaurs, ceratops, and ankylosaurus were found on one single mountainside. In La Paz, the second highest city on Earth, we can find trilobites and other creatures that used to live in the ocean. The ocean was over 2 miles deeper than it is now! Tarija is another part of Bolivia where many fossils have been found and there's a very cool paleontology museum.
