12-Year-Old unearths 69-million-year old rare fossil in Canada

Nathan Hrushkin, a 12-year-old boy, discovered a dinosaur skeleton dating back 69 million years in a fossil-rich part of Alberta, Canada, this past July. According to the CTV News, the amateur paleontologist discovered the hadrosaur fossil in the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Nodwell property at Horseshoe Canyon. When Hrushkin first saw the fossils, he was “literally speechless,” he told the BBC. “I wasn’t even excited, even though I know I should have [been] … I was in so much shock that I had actually found a dinosaur discovery,” he added.
