Prehistoric Monster - Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology - Drumheller, Alberta Canada

I don’t recall what the name of this sea going creature was from the Royal Tyrel Museum of Paleantology in Drumheller, Alberta Canada, but for sure this is not something you would want swimming up behind you.

Hey Chris,

Huge fan of your show, and have listened to all your episodes – way back to Episode 1. Not usually one to comment on things, but since I’ve lived in Banff almost all my life and am very familiar with the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, just wanted to let you know that this is a Dunkleosteus skull. Have almost the same photo myself, only it has the plaque in it πŸ˜‰

Anyways, keep up the amazing work! Always look forward to listening to your Amateur Traveler and This Week in Travel podcasts. I, like you, am subscribed to 70+ podcasts, but yours are definitely at the top of my list.

Be sure to let me know if you’re ever back in the Banff/Lake Louise area. I’ll be sure to set something up for you and the family.

Take care!



Dean, thanks so much! I was hoping someone would know.



Wow and someone who competes we me for # of podcasts… impressive. πŸ™‚
