Royal Tyrrell Museum

The Royal Tyrrell Museum is well worth the trip! Took some closeups of a few interesting things. The brand new one is a new nodosaur called Borealopelta markmichelli which apparently has organic matter preserved and is the oldest known dinosaur found in Alberta. It’s also a new species of dinosaur! (National Geographic, News article). Mark Mitchell spent 7000 hours chiseling this beastie from the rock between 2011 and 2016.
