Dinosaur ‘Mummy” Has Been Just Discovered By Mine Workers In Canada About 110 Million-Year-Old

In 2011, Shawn Funk was working for Suncor in Alberta while he was preparing crude oil sands, he immediately found walnut brown rocks that similar to the ribs. In fact, it was a dinosaur, said Funk in 2011 interview. After that, scientists has searched that dinosaurs are about 110 million-year-old. Over five years, we can see the lasted at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and scientists says the dinosaur fossil’s skin and armor still the same. Not only a skeleton but also a dinosaur as it would have been,Caleb Brown, a researcher at the Royal Tyrell Museum told National Geographic. The dinosaur is perfectly prevented as it may have been pushed by a flooded river and carried out to sea. More than millions of years, minerals replaced the dinosaur’s armor and skin, so preventing it to show from now.

Scientists are celebrating after the discovery of what could possibly be the
best-preserved armoured dinosaur specimen ever found

Known as nodosaur, it’s around 110 million-year-old

It was discovered back in 2011 by a Canadian heavy equipment operator when drilling for crude oil

“We don’t just have a skeleton… We have a dinosaur as it would have been”

It “may have been swept away by a flooded river and carried out to sea,
where it eventually sank” to be so incredibly well preserved
