Mosasaur Originally uploaded by ArtBrom

The skeleton of a Mosasaur has been found near Morden. It is 93% of the size of the largest Mosasaur found in Canada.

The article doesn’t mention this, but the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre is a museum located in Morden. It houses the largest collection of marine reptile fossils in Canada. I don’t associate “Marine” and “Morden” with each other but apparently 18,000 years ago we had a Seaway running near Morden.

I wish my elementary school would have taken us to this museum. I might have more appreciation dino-bones.
