Researchers discover 'epic' new Burgess Shale site in Canada's Kootenay National Park
Date:2/11/2014

days. In just 15 days of field collecting, 50 animal species have already been unearthed at the new Kootenay National Park site.

  • Some species found at the new Kootenay site are also found in China's famous Chengjiang fossil beds, which are 10 million years older. This contributes to the pool of evidence suggesting that the local and worldwide distribution of Cambrian animals, as well as their longevity, might have been underestimated.
