WALHALLA, N.D. (AP) - Officials are digging for fossils at the Pembina River Gorge in northeastern North Dakota this week.

Fossils as old as 80 million years have been found in the area in the past, including those of giant sea lizards called mosasaurs (MOHZ’-uh-sorz).

The state Parks and Recreation Department says this year’s dig got underway Monday and was continuing through Sunday.
