Live From the Labs

Thursday, July 26, 2018

The ENHM Laboratories have often been a hive of activity over the past few months. We have had quite a few individual travellers & some bigger groups, including a group utilising NDIS funding. All of which called in to experience what it’s like to work on dinosaur or megafauna fossils. Some people participated for a few hours and some for over 10 days. Helen Smith recently completed her 10 day training program and gained the skills to be our newest Honorary Volunteer in fossil preparation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the Eromanga dinosaurs and the Eulo Diprotodon (Megafauna) have common names like Cooper, George, Sid, Zac and Kenny?

These are identifying names we give a new important dinosaur or megafauna discovery so we know which individual we are talking about. In many cases with the dinosaurs they will be scientifically described as completely new dinosaurs and then they are given a special scientific name.  If they are not a new species then they will already have a special scientific name.  ‘Kenny’ has a scientific name already, Diprotondon optatum.
