110 million-Years-old dinosaur fossil best preserved Ever found in a mine

110 million old dinosaur fossil best preserved Ever found in a mine - Source Museum website

An 110 million-year-old dinosaur fossil best preserved in the world discovered accidentally at the Suncor Millennium Mine near Fort McMurray in 2011. The miner, Shawn Funk, a heavy equipment operator, did not know that this day will end at noon with a surprisingly turn out to be one of the most significant dinosaur discoveries ever.

Funk, a Suncor employee, spotted something unusual while excavating in the mine. This 3,000-pound new species known as nodosaur, armored plant-eater, is the best preserved armored dinosaur ever found. He has two 20-inch-long spikes stuck out of its shoulder, allowing it to fight off enemies. Scientists suggest this dinosaur was a reddish color with lighter horns.

Paleobiologist Jakob Vinther from the University of Bristol told The Sun “the fossil was so pristine that it might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago.”

Being unveiled at Canada’s Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, the public had an opportunity to watch through the lab gallery window how all the fossil’s pieces have been put together by technicians, so it can finally show at the exhibition today.

More details of the story in the June issue of National Geographic magazine.
