Dinosaur bones

Did you know Canada.. Dinosaur bones have been discovered in the oilsands of Alberta. They are thought to be about 110 million years old - which is significantly older than bones found in near by Dinosaur Provincal Park which are thought to be about 75 million years old.

It is believed the bones belong to an Ankylosaur - a rare find. While fossils from Ankylosaur have been found in Alberta before, the discovery is significant because almost the entire fossil has been well preserved.

Very exciting find!
