Here's an amazing video showing a team of paleontologists in Natural Trap Cave uncovering a rich layer of fossils from animals that became trapped in the cave some 30,000 years ago. Natural Trap Cave (NTC) is a pitfall trap cave in the Bighorn Mountains, in northern Wyoming, USA, and access is restricted to permitted scientific expeditions.
