Cracking rocks to find fossils


More Fossils

'The Prince of Miguasha' - the link -gills and lungs and proper...

Next we drove along the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec to the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site in Canada: Miguasha Park.

Miguasha is a heritage site because it has the most representative and complete fossils of the Devonian Period anywhere in the world. (Devonian saw the evolution from fishes to land animals) It also has a very high number of them in a small shale cliff beside the ocean - less than a kilometer long. They had a very interesting museum and displays, and we had a great time before heading on to Quebec City.
