Dinosaurs

Why do travelers visit Drumheller? Besides the incredible views of the badlands and hoodoos, it is the Royal Tyrrell (Dinosaur) Museum. The badlands in the Red River Valley are 72 million years old. Apparently, Alberta has the greatest dinosaur diversity in the world, and new finds occur every year. A new addition, currently being called Nodosaurs was just recently put on display to the public. It is unique in the it still has its skin and inards intact.

What I particularly like about the displays in addition to the fossils, is the life size painting of what the dinosaur may have looked like intact.
