The WDM will be marking the outbreak of the First World War with four showcase exhibits – initially, one at each of our four Museums. We hope visitors will pause and read the interesting Saskatchewan-based stories they have to tell. Later in 2014, the four showcases will be combined into one exhibit that will travel throughout the WDM system over the next few years.

Big Bert, a 92 million year old crocodile skeleton discovered in 1991 along the
banks of Carrot River in the Pasquia Hills, will be taking up residence at the
Western Development Museum – Saskatoon this fall. This fossil is the world’s
most complete Terminonaris crocodile skeleton measuring approximately 5.6 m (19
feet) long; its skull alone is more than 1 m long.
Big Bert is brought back to life through 3D imagining that allows visitors to spin the bones around in any direction and to also flesh out the animal for an in depth and interactive study of the cast.
