A 12 year old boy from Calgary named Nathan Hrushkin discovers a partly uncovered dinosaur fossil while on a hike with his father at Horseshoe Canyon’s conservation site in Alberta, Canada. Nathan found a humerus bone from the arm of a young “hadrosaur” — a plant-eating dinosaur with flattened jaws similar to a duck, that lived 69 million years ago. Nathan and his father, Dion, found the fossil uphill but were careful not to unearth it themselves. They sent the photos and GPS location to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, a research institute that studies fossils and ancient life. The institute then sent a team of researchers to the site where the bone was found.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada mentions not to disturb or dig up any fossils people may find since these are protected by law. So far, 30-50 bones have been found all coming from a single hadrosaur believed to be 3-4 years old. The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s curator of dinosaur palaeoecology François Therrien says that the discovery is significant to provide more information about dinosaurs that lived in Alberta and their evolution.
