Arm of Harm

The Buffalo Bills are named after William Cody, better-known as Buffalo Bill. Back in the 1870s, Buffalo Bill traveled through Wyoming with Yale paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh, looking for dinosaur fossils. Buffalo Bill guided the expeditions. “With them rode the Yale party, mounted on Indian ponies, and armed with rifle, revolver, and geological hammer, and Bowie knife.” The expeditions were successful, and Marsh was able to ship tons of dinosaur fossils by boxcar back to Yale.

 

In addition to dinosaurs, Marsh also discovered the fossil remains of pterosaurs. The most famous pterosaur, and one of the largest, is the pterodactyl. The pterodactyl’s tail was 3.5% as long as its wingspan. 
 

The original Buffalo Bill made a significant contribution to paleontology by helping Marsh find fossils of dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and ichthyosaurs. Bearing that in mind, surely the football team named in Buffalo Bill’s honor deserves to win the Super Bowl.
