Junior Visits Ucluelet Aquarium

The fleshed out juvenile elasmosaur that is usually in the museum’s lobby took a road trip to Ucluelet this month along with fossils from the collection.

If you get a chance this summer, visit the Ucluelet Aquarium-it’s a great place to get up close and personal with present day marine life, like the spotted rat fish. The Courtenay Museum holds the first cretaceous rat fish fossil found in western North America so we have a lot in common. Thanks to the staff of the aquarium for hosting us. Junior will return to Courtenay by July!
