The Mackenzie River, at 4, kilometres, is the second-longest river system in North America after the Mississippi and drains an area of million square kilometres. Turritella is a genus of medium-sized sea snails with an operculum, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Turritellidae. They have tightly coiled shells, whose overall shape is basically that of an elongated cone. The name Turritella comes from the Latin word turritus meaning "turreted" or "towered" and the diminutive suffix -ella.

    Once you consider the fact that 20 million years ago this region was a grassy, Serengeti-like plain, perhaps it becomes not so surprising that the Agate Fossil Beds have easily become one of the most impressive fossil sites in North America. Most of the fossils have been visible in the Agate’s cliffs, the result of the fact the animals died.   Saul () summarized molluscan fossil records in the Cretaceous sequences of the Pacific Coast region of North America, and then briefly discussed warming–cooling trends and faunal provinces in this region. She apparently used rudist records as important Tethyan indicators.
