Okay, Kentucky is also called the Bluegrass State or Commonwealth depending on who you talk to. No, the grass is NOT actually blue naturally. It has to do with the fact that Kentucky sits on an abundance of Limestone, a Sedimentary rock. See where I'm going with this? That's right. Where there's Sedimentary rock, there's also fossils!!! Kentucky is loaded with them!!! What kind, you ask? Here they are and you tell me what they are:
Those are a few of the abundant fossils in Kentucky. However, no Dinosaur fossils have been found in Kentucky, why? The reason is most of the rocks are older than the dinosaurs. Most fossils in Kentucky are Paleozoic fossils from the Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, and so forth. So although Kentucky has potential for fossils, doesn't mean you find what always find what your looking for unless your looking for Trilobites or something. So, if you want a dinosaur, then you'll have to look for places with exposed rocks from the Mesozoic era. But, that doesn't mean you'll find something. So, don't get your hopes up. And, NO, DO NOT go hunting for fossils on Private Property. That's NOT okay.
Anyway, as for the "Bluegrass" thing, the reason is that Limestone is full of calcium which is absorbed by the grass and when the sunlight hits it at a certain time and angle, the grass give off a blueish tint. In fact, this is the secret to Kentucky's strong Thoroughbred horses that race in the Derby at Churchhill Downs in Louisville. The horses get strong, dense bones from eating the calcium rich grass. That's Kentucky for you.
