100-million Year Old Crocodilian Tracks in Tumbler Ridge

The Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation has uncovered another significant prehistoric discovery.

Over 200 tracks ancient crocodiles were found, preserved for over 100 million years near the Quintette Mines outside of Tumbler Ridge.

Palaeontologist Richard McCrea says the finds were a “pleasant surprise.”

“These are some of the better-preserved crocodile tracks that I’ve seen, either in person or in publications, from around the world,” he says.

Since the discovery, McCrea and his team have made latex molds of the 5-metre square area, which will be used to make track models and publications.
