A massive dinosaur fossil has been unearthed in Alberta.
But it wasn’t an expedition of paleontologists who found it.
It was a pipeline worker.
A man was using a backhoe to move some earth for a pipeline that was being installed near Spirit River, Alberta. The worker hit something he thought was a rock.
He laid the piece of “rock” to one side, and kept digging, according to CBC News.
But it wasn’t rock at all. It was a huge fossilized skeleton—a tail, to be precise.
It was about two metres long.
The worker stopped digging and called in some experts.
