    Huge dinosaurs like Pachyrhinosaurus and Edmontosaurus roamed the Grande Prairie area about 70 million years ago, but such heavyweights never had the Cretaceous world to themselves.

  • (R)Evolution!

    (R)Evolution! ‘Chickenosaurus’ and the Science of ‘Evo-Devo’ Occasionally in nature, animals are born with mutations that cause them to exhibit ancestral traits.

These traits, which occur in both plants and animals, are called ‘atavisms’ or ‘evolutionary throwbacks’. Some animals also
