Many of the most amazing dinosaurs on earth lived in what is now Canada. Nova Scotia claims some of the oldest dinosaur bones. Dinosaur footprints have been found in the Rocky Mountains, Tyrannosaurus rex bones have been found in Saskatchewan, and Alberta is a gold mine for fossils with over 35 species alone in Dinosaur Provincial Park. Digging Canadian Dinosaurs investigates the diverse species of dinosaurs that lived in prehistoric Canada. Readers will learn about each dinosaur`s unique characteristics, such as the thick skulls of the boneheaded dinosaurs, the 2,000 teeth of a duck-billed, and the powerful hind legs of a meat-munching dinosaur, and how paleontologists can find out about how dinosaurs lived from looking at their fossils. Chapters cover topics such as extinction of dinosaurs, the study of paleontology, and famous fossil hunters. With colour illustrations and easy-to-read text, this book shares the fascinating history of dinosaurs in a unique Canadian context
