110 Million Year Old Dinosaur Fossil Found in Canada

Reuters is reporting on dinosaur fossils found in the Canadian oil sands that date back 110 million years.
Notes the report, "The fossil is an ankylosaur, a plant-eating dinosaur with powerful limbs, armor plating and a club-like tail. Finding it in this region of northern Alberta was a surprise because millions of years ago the area was covered by water. 'We've never found a dinosaur in this location,' Donald Henderson, a curator at Alberta's Royal Tyrrell Museum, which is devoted to dinosaurs, said. "Because the area was once a sea, most finds are invertebrates such as clams and ammonites... It is pretty amazing that it survived in such good condition. It is also the earliest complete dinosaur that we have from this province."
