From Recordset

The vertebrate fossil collection at the Royal Ontario museum consists of over 72,000 catalogued and databased fossil specimens of all vertebrate classes. Inventory and databasing of the fossil fishes is not yet complete however, so this number will grow in the near future. The collection is just over a century old, having been started with a donation from the University of Toronto when the museum was created in 1914. Particular strengths of the collection include Cretaceous dinosaurs from Alberta, Jurassic ichthyosaurs, Tertiary mammals from Saskatchewan, Quaternary mammals from Peru, Ecuador, Florida and Alberta, as well as Quaternary birds from Peru.
