Dinosaur bones dating as far back as 75 million years have been found near Tumbler Ridge. Paleontologist Rich McCrea, says the bones are from the Upper Cretaceous period and are from a Hadrosaur, which is nicknamed the ‘Duck Billed Dinosaur’, and a Tyrannosaur, the big predator of the era.

He says the finds include some Tyrannosaur teeth, as well as rib and vertebrae parts of a Hadrosaur.

This is a major find for paleontology in the area. Dinosaur bones have been discovered at only two other sites near Tumbler Ridge, the last time in 2004.
