On loan from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum
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.

Les Canadiens ne s'entendent pas sur la question de l'alcool depuis au
moins deux siècles !
Nous présentons ici l'histoire de ceux qui ont défendu la tempérance...et de ceux s'y sont opposés par tour les moyens.
