Ya Ha Tinda on Display

This month, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is unveiling a new iteration of their "Fossils in Focus" display. This display is an annual exhibit of the new fossil discoveries and research associated with Alberta's fossils and the museum. 

This year several fossils from the Ya Ha Tinda Lagerstätte are on display! 

 A belemnoid with soft tissue, a crinoid, and a fish skull!

Complete with a little blurb and some drawings!

I'm pretty excited, this is the first museum exhibit at the RTMP that I have helped design.

So, if you're in Alberta, stop by the Tyrrell (the whole museum is worth a visit!), and check out your little display.
