Four adorable canines came to the Faculty of Law building Nov. 27 to soothe the nerves of law students anxious about upcoming end-of-term papers and exams. The dogs are part of the Chimo Animal Assisted Therapy program.
Philip Currie has made some spectacular and rare fossil finds while dino hunting in Alberta’s badlands, so when he says a discovery ranks among the best of his career, it’s significant.
The internationally renowned University of Alberta paleontologist unearthed a remarkably preserved, near-complete skeleton of a baby Chasmosaurus belli. It’s the first time anyone has found a baby of this species intact in 150 years of digs at Dinosaur Provincial Park—or anywhere for that matter.
That makes Currie one proud papa.
“It’s pretty exciting. It’s a super specimen, and I’m very lucky to be the guy that found it,” said Currie, Canada Research Chair in Dinosaur Paleobiology in the Department of Biological Sciences. “There’s no question this is one of the very best ones I’ve ever found.”
The Chasmosaurus was a horned dinosaur once commonly found in Alberta’s badlands, a relative of the Triceratops. Currie estimates the 1.5-metre-long fossilized baby was about three years old when it died, possibly from drowning, 72 million years ago.
