Oligocene (30-35 Million Years Old) - Brule Formation, White River Badlands Group, South Dakota, USA

Today the badlands are a series of highly eroded hills and gullies of light colored sedimentary layers. Stylemys was the first species of fossil tortoise to be discovered and described in North America.
