Four of the Most Unique Dinosaur Fossil Bones Ever are on display at the Nevada County Fairgrounds this weekend.   The Nevada County Gem and Mineral Society is presenting Earth’s Treasures October 13-14. The The Society’s publicist, Joyce Emerson, describes one of dinosaurs as similar to an ancient alligator, another like a desert-plated lizard and the third is an aquatic dinosaur.
