Southern Alberta is a place where dinosaur fossils have been found, & as we were driving to PChad's parents' house, we passed a few signs for the Devil's Coulee Dinosaur museum. The kids thought that sounded exciting, so we went one morning to check it out.
There's a museum as well as a site where they found several fossils that you can go & look, but you are not allowed to take anything home with you. It was a hot smokey day, but that didn't stop us from finding a few treasures.
At the top of the picture is a fossilized dinosaur bone, & the black bit is part of a dinosaur egg shell. We also found fossilized turtle shells, teeth, & Chancery kept finding fossilized poop!
Here's large piece of fossilized dinosaur bone we found!
It was cool to see on the different levels of ground, they different types of fossils.
Strange to think there were turtles, crocodiles & dinosaurs out here on the prairie!
