World's Largest Dinosaur Graveyard Found





The world's largest dinosaur graveyard has been discovered in Alberta, Canada, according to David Eberth of the Royal Tyrrell Museum and other scientists working on the project.

The Vancouver Sun reports that the massive dinosaur bonebed is 1.43-square miles in size. Eberth says it contains thousands of bones belonging to the dinosaur Centrosaurus, which once lived near what is now the Saskatchewan border.

A journal paper outlining details about it is expected later this month.

Alberta has yielded many well-preserved dinosaur remains in the past, but paleontologists have never quite been sure why. It's hoped that this latest find may help to clarify what geological conditions, or series of events, help to produce such pristine fossils....
