It is the discovery that sends hearts pounding -- and opens a window to the mystifying world of dinosaurs. Their fossilized bones testify to the massive beasts that once ruled the earth and then suddenly disappeared 65 million years ago. During the time of these great beasts, a great inland sea covered much of Western Canada and the area now known as Alberta and Saskatchewan was a lush, subtropical shore -- and home to over 35 known dinosaur species. As these animals died, the evolving landscape covered their bones with centuries of mud and sand -- only to be revealed when the glaciers from the last Ice Age scraped away the top layers of rock and exposed bits of fossilized bone. Discovered by paleontologists in the late 1800s, they inspired generations of dinosaur hunters and established Canada as one of the richest sources of Late Cretaceous fossils on earth.

Parasaurolophus was one of the 12 duck-billed dinosaurs that flourished throughout Alberta between 65 and 76 million years ago. It is easily identified by the 6-foot long crest curving out from the back of its head that paleontologists believe was used for communication -- an important capability for these rather docile herbivores that relied on their herds for protection. This distinctive-looking dinosaur was 9 m (30 ft) long and weighed 3,500 kg (7,700 lb).

Triceratops was one of 14 horned (ceratopsian) species that flourished throughout Alberta between 65 and 72 million years ago. Triceratops (meaning "three-horned face") is easily identified by the three menacing horns on its face which combine with the large frill over its neck to intimidate would be These dinosaurs were solidly built, weighing as much as 6,000 kg (13,200 lb) and measuring up to 9 m (30 ft) long.

Tyrannosaurus rex was one of several large carnivore (tyrannosaur) species that lived in Alberta, appearing shortly before the mysterious mass extinction. Its name means "tyrant lizard" and there is no doubt it still rules today as the most popularized image of these prehistoric animals. The mighty Tyrannosaurus rex measured up to 12 m (39 ft) from head to tail. It had a gaping one-metre (3 ft) bite with 10 to 15 cm (4 to 6 in) long teeth that could rip out hundreds of pounds of flesh at a time.

Dromaeosaurus (meaning "running lizard") was one of two raptor (dromaeosaurid) species that lived in Alberta between 74 and 76 million years ago. This group of dinosaurs is closely related to birds. They were agile with a light body and a long tail that maintained their balance as they ran upright on their two hind legs. Measuring about 2.5 m (8.25 ft) from head to tail, Dromaeosaurus would normally weigh less than 20 kg (44 lb). With clawed hands on its fore limbs and sharp, recurved teeth, it was perfectly equipped for slicing into its prey.

Euoplocephalus tutus was a large, 5.5 m (18 ft) long armadillo-like creature that lived in Alberta between 76 and 70 million years ago. It weighed some 2.5 t (2.8 tn) and its back was covered with large and small pieces of bony armour embedded in the skin. Even the dinosaur�s eyelids were covered with moving bony plates. In fact, �Euoplocephalus tutus,� means �well armoured head;� a name derived from the ancient Greek language. Euoplocephalus was also equipped with a defensive tail club that was formed by four bony growths fused together. Despite the warring impression of such extensive body armour, Euoplocephalus was a slow-moving herbivore that fed on fleshy, low-lying vegetation.
