LONDON - Edmonton sewer workers stumbled upon the remains of three dinosaurs - possibly the cousins of Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Aaron Krywiak and Ryley Paul first saw a sharp tooth while digging 30 metres underground near the city’s river valley.
“We knew it was pretty significant,” the Globe and Mail quoted Krywiak as saying.
Later, the crew found the remains of Albertosaurus (a carnivore that stood on two legs) and two Edmontosauruses (a four-legged herbivore).
“There’s lots of pieces. We haven’t gotten through them all yet,” said Don Brinkman of Royal Tyrrell dinosaur museum, which will take the bones for its collection.
Albertosaurus was a smaller cousin of the carnivorous Tyrannosaurus rex that roamed the Earth about 75 million years ago.
The Edmontosaurus was a large, toothless dinosaur from the same time period as the T-Rex. (ANI)
