80 million years ago, Manitoba was a little different than it is today. As you can imagine, it was somewhat of an eat-or-get-eaten type of situation. We’re talking ferocious dinosaurs, dreadful predators of the deep and massive woolly mammoths. It was a harsh environment, covered by a giant saltwater seaway where danger lurked both on land and beneath the water’s surface. Today, our prehistoric past can be found in traces of creatures long gone. The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre is the one of the best spots in Manitoba to see fossils up close, boasting the largest collection of marine fossils in Canada and the opportunity to go on a real-life fossil dig. Did we mention it’s also home to the largest publicly displayed mosasaur in the world? Good ol’ Bruce.
