Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology

Drumheller is located 130 km Northeast of Calgary in Alberta's Badlands. Made up of badlands, hoodoos, canyons and coulees, the area provides vast terrains of discovery.
The Drumheller Badlands are one of the few areas in the world where sedimentary layers from earlier time periods have been scraped off by natural processes, exposing a rich cache of fossils and even complete dinosaur skeletons.

    I never realized that Canada had so many dinosaurs in the past...always learning new things here. Thanks for the info. and pics, Kev. Glad I wasn't around at that time...they look like nasty creatures...cats are much nicer :-)
