    Canada unveils ‘dinosaur mummy’ found with skin and gut contents intact

    Wow, what an amazing find!

    Scientists hail it as perhaps the best-preserved dinosaur specimen ever uncovered. You can’t even see its bones.

    That’s because, 110 million years later, those bones remain covered by the creature’s intact skin and armor.

    Indeed, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology in Alberta, Canada recently unveiled a dinosaur so well-preserved that many have taken to calling it not a fossil, but an honest-to-goodness “dinosaur mummy.”

    With the creature’s skin, armor, and even some of its guts intact, researchers are astounded at its nearly unprecedented level of preservation.

    How cool is that!?!?! We’re thinking about going to Alberta next year on vacation. If we do I’ll have to check this out.

    Actually, you'd never think of there being surviving DNA after that length of time, but in this case, who knows? I'm sure they've been looking, particularly in the petrous bone...
