Miners searching for gemstones near Lethbridge, Alberta, have found the remains of a gigantic sea creature that lived 70 million years ago.
After discovering the fossils in mid-June, the miners alerted the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. Paleontologists have since identified the specimen as a 20-foot-long mosasaur, a type of marine animal that lived during the age of the dinosaurs, and went extinct with them 66 million years ago.
