Canada

Canada is rich in fossils, especially the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. There have been many dinosaurs, Ichthyosaurs, and other types of fossils found there.

Many dinosaurs have been named after Canadian cities, provinces, and rock formations, including AlbertosaurusAlbertosaurus (a large carnivore related to T. rex found near Alberta), EdmontosaurusEdmontosaurus (a duck-billed dinosaur found in the Edmonton rock formation), Columbosauripus (fossilized Coelurosaur trackways found in early-Cretaceous sediment from British Columbia), and Edmontonia (an Ankylosaur found in th Edmonton rock formation near Alberta). LambeosaurusLambeosaurus (a duck-billed dinosaur) was named after Lawrence Lambe, a Canadian paleontolgist.

BURGESS SHALE
The Burgess shale is an incredibly fossil-rich area in the Canadian Rocky Mountains (in British Columbia). This Lagerstatten (a geological fossil deposit rich with varied, well-preserved fossils) is replete with fossils from the Cambrian Period, roughly 500 million years old. The Burgess shale was discovered in 1909 by Charles Doolittle Wolcott, who was the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. at the time. Fossils from this area include early representatives of most modern groups, including worms, sponges, shrimp-like crustaceans, and jellyfish.
