Dinosaur bones found in Canadian sewer tunnel

Monday, August 23, 2010

A tooth and limb bone, which experts believe belong to the Albertosaurus and the Edmontosaurus species, were found by drainage crews in the Quesnell Heights neighbourhood.

The Royal Tyrrell Museum is helping city officials to identify the fossils.

Museum officials say finding dinosaur bones in Canada's Alberta province is a relatively common occurrence.

"I can go out on a hike on a Sunday and find a dinosaur bone. But it's really a question of how significant the find is," said Leanna Mohan, the museum's marketing coordinator.

Andy Neuman, the executive director of the museum, said that although dinosaur bones had been discovered in Edmonton in the past, this was the first time the city of Edmonton has made the discovery.
