    UNDATED (CNN) -- It's like a scene out of a Flinstones' cartoon: a backhoe operator drops its shovel right on top of a dinosaur's tail. But this really happened in Canada!

    Take a look at what workers at an oil pipeline construction site in Alberta found. They found the fossilized remains of a large dinosaur!

    After finding the fossils, the crew immediately stopped work and contacted a paleontologist. That expert says finding a fossil this well-preserved and complete is incredibly rare!

    It's still not clear exactly what species the dinosaur was. A research team is now scrambling to carefully remove the fossil before Canada's harsh winter sets in.
