ALBERTA, CANADA -- A construction worker had a day at work he'll probably never forget.

The worker at an oil pipeline site in Canada dropped his shovel right on top of  fossilized remains of a large dinosaur. After finding the fossils the crew stopped what they were doing and called a paleontologist.

The expert says finding a fossil this well-preserved and complete is incredibly rare. It's still not clear what species the dinosaur was.

A research team is now scrambling to carefully remove the fossil before Canada's harsh winter sets in.
