ROM: Dino Unearthed

Go to ROM site for full details HERE. 

Full exhibit opens January 24, 2015

A new dinosaur has been discovered with a strange feature never seen before - and we need your help to give it a nickname HERE.

  • Enter the "Name* Our Dino" contest at

  • Visit the 2nd-floor Dino Gallery (James and Louise Temerty Galleries of the Age of Dinosaurs) starting December 15 for hints about the dino's appearance (we're keeping it hidden in a shipping crate until January 24!) and some real bones from the new species, straight from the field.

  • ROM GOES WILD for the Holidays! (December 26, 2014 to January 4, 2015) would be a great time to celebrate wildlife, explore the exotic and come up with that wildly appealing nickname for our new dino.

  • Come back for our Dinos Invade! weekend at the ROM on January 24 and 25, 2015 and see the new dino - no longer in a crate! If you've not yet submitted your nickname for the new arrival, this dino-packed weekend will surely inspire you. 

  • Be the first to hear the details as the Dino Unearthed exhibit, opening January 24, 2015, takes shape: 

No dinosaur is complete without a special nickname - make this new dino proud by giving it a great one. Enter the contest* today!

* The "Name Our Dino" contest seeks a nickname, not the species name.


Watch for Dino Hunt Canada on HISTORY Canada in early 2015 to get the scoop on how this dino was discovered. 

Dino Hunt Canada is organized by the Royal Ontario Museum, Shaw Media, Secret Location and Cream Productions.
