B.C.’s most complete dinosaur skeleton moved to Tumbler Ridge

The find made headlines in 2008 and 2009 after the nearly fully intact bones were found in the Tumbler Ridge area. 

Excavating the fossil, which is missing its head, took three years to complete, partially funded by a $25,000 grant from the North Peace Economic Development Commission. 

However, the Peace Region Palaeontology Reasearch Centre says it was not removed in 2012 as all available helicopters were tied up with the busy forest fire season. 

Hadrosaurs lived more than 65 million years ago, and were plant eaters.
