DescriptionCampfire Program: Prehistoric Fish of the Yellowstone
Join us as Fish Biologist Mat Rugg takes us on a journey through time as he talks about the pallid sturgeon and paddlefish, the prehistoric fish of the Yellowstone River. Pallid Sturgeon is one of the rarest fishes in North America with a unique dinosaur-like appearance and have been swimming around since the dinosaurs. Paddlefish survived from an ancient and primitive group. Paddlefish may be the oldest big game animal surviving in North America. This program will be at the Visitor Center.
