I would like to introduce Boykosaur to you. He was discovered at Big Indian Cliff on 17 July 2020 on the banks of the St. Mary River on the Kainai Reserve. He is an exquisite example of dinosaur ammolite fossil art. He is truly unique and one-of-a-kind display decor. It is sure to be a center of attention in the home of an ammolite collector or someone that appreciates art reptiles, chameleons, or fossils.
The Alberta ammonite fossil was in this exact shape when found. Most miners would have cut him up for ammolite gem. He now thrives as he has been repaired, stabilized, and polished. Other than the shape and dazzling rainbow colors, the fibonacci spiral eye is not only rare in shape but the location in the fossil. The swirl on almost all ammolite gem fossils is more central. The mouth, protrusion over the eye, and missing section (horn on the dinosaur) on the bottom left complete the picture. He was a member of the ankylosaurus genus (picture follows) that also lived in the same area in Alberta at the same time as the KT extinction 66 million years ago.
This fossil has a blue zone fractured gem so it also imitates small ankylosaurus scales. If one rotates the artwork 180 degrees, it resembles a chameleon.
The story gets better for us, but not so good got Boykosaur. He also has four mosasaur bites on him. A mosasaur tooth (from Texas, not Alberta) that could have lived in the Western Inland Sea at the same time as this ammonite stone fossil art will be included. Thus, the dinosaur comes alive today. It is against the law to sell mosasaur teeth found in Alberta. Please view the other pictures in this series.
