D - Dinosaurs in Drumheller
Posted On 08/12/2015 18:56:09 by yourchoice

It seems that there is a much greater interest in dinosaurs during my lifetime. Young children can remember the oddest names for those prehistoric animals, and many have a bag full of toys to play dinosaur stories with their friends.

When I was growing up, there was this large dinosaur at the Calgary Zoo, and we always looked forward to having some time to climb up the tail. In the last few years, the Zoo has upgraded the Prehistoric Park and it has become a highly favored spot for family fun.

The Royal Tyrrell Museum, located in Drumheller, Alberta, is a Canadian tourist attraction and a centre of palaeontological research noted for its collection of more than 130,000 fossils. It is located about one hour and thirty minutes from Calgary, in the Badlands of eastern Alberta. It would take too long for me to tell you all about it, so I am including a link to the website so that you can see photos and learn more this famous site in our province.

DRUMHELLER, ALBERTA

By the way, I almost forgot to tell you that I was born in Drumheller, long before the dinosaurs became a tourist attraction.

I can't remember when I first heard of dinosaurs,  but it certainly wasn't when I was a child. I can see their attraction, but it just might dissipate were they alive and kicking!

You are so right, Barb; even the bones don't hold too much fascination to me, but for whatever reason, the young children have "adopted" them.

G-kids are dino-crazy.  Will be sure to check it out if we head Alberta way.

Looks like fun, Mona!  When my eldest nephew was 4 years old, he came to me and said "Auntie Kath,I know why Tryrannosaurus Rex is called Tyrannosaurus Rex".  I asked him "Why?"  He looked at me like I was the dumbest adult on Earth and said "The Tyrannosaurus Rex is called the Tyrannosaurus Rex, because it Wrecks everything".
