Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An incredible discovery has been unearthed by a UNLV professor and his team.
They recently found three fossilized bones at Spring Mountain Ranch, possibly from an early ancestor of a crocodile or a giant amphibian.
It dates back to about 230 million years ago, when Nevada was a giant swamp.
That would make it the oldest land-based fossil in Nevada.
