Prince Creek Formation
The Prince Creek Formation is a geological formation located in Alaska, US. Its strata date back to 80 to 61.7 million years, during the Late Cretaceous Period. It lies at 80 to 85 degrees north. Numerous dinosaur remains were recovered from this formation.
In this region, dinosaurs developed wintering strategies like hibernation or having insulating feathers. This new conclusion was made by researchers based on more than a decade’s worth of fossil excavations from the remote region in northern Alaska. This finding reveals that dinosaur reproduced and lived in frigid polar latitudes that were thought to be inhospitable for reptiles.
