Dino Found Perfectly Preserved

We can even see its color!

Any new dinosaur discovery is exciting, but it's super exciting when something special, like a mummified dino or new species is found. This week, take a look at this perfectly preserved fossil that is so well defined we can even see its color.

This fossil of Borealopelta is not only the oldest one found in Alberta, but one of the best preserved fossils ever found. Researchers say that the fossil was so well-preserved that it was like staring into the face of an actual dinosaur. You can see pictures and watch the documentary The Nature of Things to see it for yourself.

What do you think of this fossil? Have you seen any other really well-preserved ones, especially in person? Tell us about it in the chat!
