Which Dinosaurs Roamed Alberta And The Rest Of Canada?

It's been a fruitful year for dinosaur fossil discovery in Alberta.

Several weeks ago, University of Calgary researchers announced they had discovered a 70 million-year-old skull of a horned dinosaur in the Alberta Badlands.

As well, an extremely well-preserved baby dinosaur skeleton was discovered in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta last fall and within weeks pipeline crews uncovered the complete skeletons of two massive duck-billed hadrosaurs.

There's so much international interest in the dinosaurs that once roamed parts of Canada, in fact, that the University of Alberta has announced it will offer an online Dino 101 course for those interested in learning more about the ancient animals.

With all these interesting dino finds in recent months, we started to wonder what type of dinosaurs once roamed Alberta and other provinces across Canada.
