Hadrosaur remains arrive at Drumheller; Triassic protodinosaur and protomammal found in Argentina

A couple of recent news stories of interest:



News story with video about arrival in Drumheller of the nearly
complete remains of a hadrosaur found in Spirit River in northern
Alberta when its tail was exposed by a backhoe earlier this month.
(There was early confusion in some news sources that reported a
supposed size of 100 ft--it's about 30 ft long.) Most of the skeleton
appears to have been recovered, including the skull.
