Ankylosaur found in Alberta oilsands

A number of news stories are out about the discovery of a very well
preserved ankylosaur found in the oilsands in Alberta. About 110 million
years old, it's in marine deposits so its body evidently floated out to sea
before it sunk to the bottom.

Among quotes:
Don Henderson of the Royal Tyrrell says it's a magnificent find.
"It's not disturbed at all. We've even got fingers and impressions of the
scale that covered the outside of the body."
