Fossil Collection

Welcome to the online digitized CFDC fossil collection! The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre houses the largest collection of marine reptile fossils in Canada, including Canada’s largest mosasaur, our famous specimen nicknamed “Bruce.”

Researchers and website visitors can now have electronic access to the entire CFDC fossil collection from the comfort of your home or office. You can search for specific taxa or geologic formations by choosing various selections from the drop-down menus above, and clicking 'Search'. You will be taken to pages of listed taxonomic groups, and by clicking on a Specimen Number, you will then be taken to that specimen’s data page.

We would like to thank the Cultural Capital of Canada grant committee for funding this digitization project of our fossil collection as part of the 2008 Chautauqua Spirit celebration.
