During construction, the workers found adult horned dinosaur bones outside Denver, USA.
Archaeologists say fossil bones found at a suburban site in Denver, Colorado, belong to a large, adult three-horned dinosaur.
Workers found this skeleton at least 68 million years old several weeks ago.
Experts at the Denver Museum of Natural Science and Nature participated in a more in-depth study of this dinosaur skeleton.
They claimed that the bones found at the site consisted of a limb bone and several ribs of a triceratops.
Workers discovered the skeleton at a construction site near a nursing home at Highland Ranch in May in a rock that is 65 to 68 million years old.
Construction workers are now using heavy tools to dig a deep ditch to search for other dinosaur fossils in the neighborhood.
According to the museum, among the bones found in Colorado, the triceratops are the most popular.
'It's always interesting to get a call about potential fossils, and I'm very excited to share more details while we continue our research , ' said Dr. Tyler Lyson, curator. Save the ancient vertebrate creature at the museum, said.
"While these findings are relatively rare, they are also a great reminder of the dynamics of our planet and the things we can discover."
Dr. Lyson studied the evolution of dinosaurs and turtles and was particularly interested in what happened in Rocky Mountains between 66 and 68 million years ago, when the rock era began to create fossils.
Because the discovery took place at an active construction site, Dr. Lyson and his team worked closely with Wind Crest and Brinkmann, the digging company to explore the location safely. and record information about fossils.
Construction continues while the Museum proceeds to determine the number and type of fossils.
Colorado is a hot spot in the discovery of fossils with thousands of bones found in this state.
The Denver Museum of Natural Science and Nature currently has 115,000 fossils of dinosaurs, plants, and mammals.
At the Dinosaur Ridge, a famous natural site in front of the Rocky Mountains, dinosaur bones from the famous Jurassic era were found, including horny dinosaur bones and long-necked dinosaurs, along with Dinosaur footprints from the Cretaceous period.
An unspecified bone, found at the Coors 'Field baseball stadium during construction in 1995, led to Colorado Rockies' home team choosing a mascot as a dinosaur.
In 2017, it was found that the bones of a family dinosaur with triceratops at a construction site in Denver.
