Canadian Museum of Nature Fossil Vertebrate CollectionAcronym: CMNFV
Our Vertebrate Fossil Collection contains more than 61 620 specimens, and includes a broad range of fauna from the Devonian to the Pleistocene. The following are well represented in the collection: Cretaceous dinosaurs; Palaeogene mammals; Cretaceous and Devonian fishes. Of particular note are our dinosaurs from the late Cretaceous from western Canada, especially hadrosaurs and ceratopsians. The museum's Quaternary mammals, collected in northern Canada, constitute the finest and most comprehensive collection of its type. Our collections have good representation from localities from across Canada especially the north and west. Pleistocene mammals, Devonian fish, and Cretaceous dinosaurs are both research and exhibit highlights. This is in line with our traditional research activities and historically the manner in which the collection developed.
