An extremely well-preserved baby dinosaur skeleton has been discovered in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta.

The fossil is extremely rare, as it’s the smallest intact skeleton ever found from a group of horned plant-eating dinosaurs known as ceratopsids — a group that includes the iconic triceratops.

"There's nothing else like it that I know of," said Don Brinkman from the Royal Tyrrell Museum.




This is just awesome, as stated in the article: "It's as close as you can get to a dinosaur mummy".

How many more to be dug up if they were once the dominant species on this planet...probably millions and God only knows how many races we don't even know existed.

Anyway, i though this was a great story and felt like sharing!

They mean they found the "impression" of a whole skeleton?
Because I am pretty sure that is sediment where bones used to be a long time ago.
And rather than finding a skeleton they found where one had been fossilized.

There are a few cases of organic material being found, but from what I understand it's exceptionally rare.

The article's webpage keeps crashing on me, and only loads the first 4 or 5 paragraphs so I don't know if they said there were actual bones or anything in the find. I doubt it though. Could be wrong.

What strikes me the most about it, is that it seems to be bi-pedal, the way it is standing, even the neck angle to allow it to see properly when "standing up"... ...

Nice looking for sure!

Neat, S&F, I wonder if they tasted like turkey? (Can you tell I have a turkey in the oven and the house smells good?)

The (non-religious) dinosaur hoax question.

Some great evidence for the hoax is presented here.

Actually it's rare they CHECK for organic material. I believe in the ones they have actually checked it has been common. No one ever checked though because conventional knowledge said it was impossible.
