Dr. Victoria Arbour | British Columbias Mountain Dinosaur

Vertebrate paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Dr. Victoria Arbour is Curator of Paleontology at the Royal BC Museum. Victoria is the leading expert on the paleobiology of the armoured dinosaurs known as Ankylosaurs. She has named several new species of ankylosaurs, studied how they used and evolved their charismatic armour and weaponry, and investigated how their biogeography was shaped by dispersals between Asia and North America. Almost 50 years ago a geologist found what turned out to be one of the first and most complete skeletons of a dinosaur found in the British Columbia. Decades later both Victoria and this dinosaur (nicknamed Buster) are at the Royal BC Museum. Buster is possibly a new species in a rare family of dinosaurs called Leptoceratopsidae: hornless, parrot-beaked herbivores closely related to their more famous cousin, Tricerotops. Victoria’s work on Buster is revealing what British Columbia was like during the Age of Dinosaurs, 67 million years ago.
