Fort McMurray ankylosaur in Royal Tyrrell Museum video

From: Ben Creisler

Last year, an uncrushed 3-D skeleton of an ankylosaur with armor and
skin preserved intact was found in the tar sands near Fort McMurray in
Alberta. A team from the Royal Tyrrell Museum recovered the fossils. A
lecture about the find, the excavation, and early research on the
specimen is now posted on You Tube.  Many details are preserved that
are not well known from earlier finds of ankylosaurs. There are
possible gastroliths. The specimen may be CT scanned in the future.

This item was mentioned on Brian Switek's Dinosaur Tracking blog site
yesterday. In case people have not seen the video yet, here's the link
to the You Tube Royal Tyrrell Museum channel.
