A massive dinosaur fossil has been found by a pipeline crew near Spirit River, Alta.

The 30-metre-long fossilized skeleton was found Tuesday when a backhoe operator working on the Tourmaline Oil Corp. pipeline installation moved some earth, inadvertently breaking off a piece of the fossil.

Thinking he had simply chipped off a section of rock, the backhoe operator laid the piece to the side and turned to resume excavation work.

It's always amazing to me when we find stuff like this.  As much as I know that these massive creatures walked the planet, it's still incredible to see something like this.

Most likely some kind of Supersaurus. They've been found with lengths up to 34 meters.
