Most Complete Dinosaur Skeleton Unearthed

Quote:
TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. — It took five years of painstaking work on a remote B.C. hillside near the Alberta border, but last week, paleontologist Richard McCrea and his team finally unearthed the most complete dinosaur skeleton ever found in B.C.

“It’s been time consuming, but it’s quite something to go from discovering a dinosaur and excavating it and removing it,” McCrea said in an interview Thursday, describing the skeletal remains of the approximately 73-million-year-old hadrosaur that was airlifted to the Tumbler Ridge Museum last week.

But still the hunt continues: The hadrosaur is missing its head.

Re: Most Complete Dinosaur Skeleton Unearthed

I was hoping for something a little better than this but I'm not surprised seeing as how its just been lying around for 73 million fucking years.

Re: Most Complete Dinosaur Skeleton Unearthed

these beasts are big, no wonder it took them that long to unearth it without damaging.

Quote:
The hadrosaurs are known as the duck-billed dinosaurs due to the similarity of their head to that of modern ducks.

The whole front of the skull was flat and broadened out to form a beak, which was ideal for clipping leaves and twigs from the forests of Asia, Europe and North America.

However, the back of the mouth contained thousands of teeth suitable for grinding food before it was swallowed.

Hadrosaurs likely grazed on horsetails and vegetation close to the ground, rather than browsing higher-growing leaves and twigs.
