In Canada, the exhibition will show unique nodosaur
In the Royal Museum of paleontology of Tires in Alberta, Canada has opened a unique exhibition of dinosaurs. It represented a genus of extinct reptiles of the family Nothosauridae, who lived during the Triassic period (247,2-201,3 million years ago).

The mummified remains of nodosaur not unique due to size, and almost unprecedented state of preservation. The sleeping giant, which you can see in the Museum amazing. First, bones cannot be seen, a large part of the skeleton is hidden because is covered with fossilized skin and is enclosed in intact armor.

According to the Smithsonian Museum of natural history, nodosaur were herbivores that walked on four legs and was covered in tank armor and strewn with thorns for protection. This nodosaur - a new species and a new genus. Museum experts say is the oldest known dinosaur from Alberta and the most well preserved of the armored dinosaurs ever found.

The Museum worked in tandem with National geographic society to study the new nodosaur, which is described in the June issue of National Geographic magazine. Nodosaur were found in 2011. Unsuspecting excavator made a historic discovery, digging the mine, according to a press release from the Museum. 6 and 7 thousand hours of painstaking reconstruction later, and nodosaur was ready to meet with the public.

National Geographic reports that the mummified nodosaur weighs 2,500 pounds. Scientists believe that this nodosaur may have been swept away by the river and carried out to sea where it eventually sank. According to National Geographic, millions of years on the ocean floor the minerals replaced the armor and skin of the dinosaur, keeping it in realistic form.
