What do you call a dinosaur from Alberta?


  • 2010 - now

In the Discovery Gallery one of the main attractions is our Dino Dig, where children can pretend to be paleontologists and dig for dinosaur fossils. One such fossil is the jaw of an Albertosaurus. As a volunteer I often ask children “What would you call a dinosaur whose fossils are found in Alberta?” Usually children will know the answer right away or take a little time to work it out. One afternoon while I was working with a little girl I asked the above question and without missing a beat she replied with absolute certainty and a big smile “I’d call him Buddy!” To this day that is the funniest and most unique answer I have received to that question.
