It was my last day at TREX. Did the traditional “riding of the dino”

YES! I would love to see these things swishing around in person. Hopefully they’ll be at SDCC.
As I mentioned in my other post, today for my birthday (early birthday) I went to the Courtenay Museum & Paleontology Centre.
This area used to be an ancient ocean and fossils around 80 millions years old can be found here of various aquatic life (Bivalves, crabs, fish, ammonites, trilobites, etc).
However this area has recently become famous for aquatic super predators like the Elasmosaur and Mosasaur; aquatic reptiles comparable in size to the dinosaurs.
Image 1-3: Actual elasmosaur fossils. Look how big this animal got!
Image 4-5: Replica cast of elasmosaur.
Image 6: Artistic rendering of the ocean at the time these animals were alive. Ammonites are displayed.
Images 7-10: Various fossils from around this region; lots of ammonites in particular.
I would have taken more diverse photos but my phone died.
