This rock contains the fossil of an 80 million year old dinosaur that might be a new species.

The incredible find by fishermen was uncovered when floods hit Alberta, Canada last year.

This boulder was found in the Castle River in southern Alberta. The large rock was airlifted by helicopter and taken to Canada’s Royal Tyrrell Museum.

The curator of dinosaurs at the museum believes they have identified the type of dinosaur.

“This specimen is coming from a place where we haven’t had dinosaurs before,” Donald Henderson, the museum’s curator of dinosaurs, says in the video. “This will be a significant specimen. We’re going to learn a lot from it.”
