Incredible Discovery: 110 Million-Year-Old Dinosaur 'Mummy' Accidentally Found In Canada
Shawn Funk, a heavy equipment operator, was drilling a vast pit 17 miles north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, when he suddenly hit something unusual - walnut brown rocks that looked like ribs. Funk had just discovered a 110 million-year-old dinosaur "mummy", but he had no idea yet.
Discovered by accident in Alberta, Canada, this nodosaur is the best-preserved dinosaur of its kind!
Even its face remains frozen in a threatening glare...
“We don’t just have a skeleton,” said Caleb Brown, a researcher at the Royal Tyrrell Museum
“We have a dinosaur as it would have been”
You can also see the possible remnants of the nodosaur's last meal!
The dinosaur “may have been swept away by a flooded river and carried out to sea, where it eventually sank”
“Over millions of years on the ocean floor, minerals took the place of the dinosaur’s armor and skin...”
“... preserving it in the lifelike form now on display”
