Satellite ExhibitsDevil's Coulee Dinosaur Egg Site

In 1987, a local Warner teenager found dinosaur eggshell fragments that led to the exciting discovery of Canada’s first dinosaur nesting site.

The Devil’s Coulee Dinosaur Egg Site remains one of palaeontology’s best resources for embryonic dinosaur material.

Palaeontologists have excavated four Hypacrosaurus (a hollow-crested  duck-billed dinosaur) nests including several eggs that produced embryonic material.

The discoveries exposed the most complete embryonic dinosaur remains in North America—specimens that changed many of the existing theories about duck-billed  dinosaurs.

The Devil’s Coulee Dinosaur Egg Site, owned and operated by the Government of Alberta, is an active research site for the Royal Tyrrell Museum.
