ABC Radio Interview - Dinosaur Digs

Monday, May 28, 2018

Interview with ABC Radio Western Qld, Ollie Wykeham and Robyn Mackenzie ENHM, 25/5/18 ENHM Dinosaur Dig 2018.

Dinosaur dig unearths huge dinosaur bones from a very extensive bone bed west of Eromanga. Dinosaur diggers and Santos are helping to fund these digs and they are getting an experience of a lifetime. Preparing these bones takes a long time and now the museum needs funding to help cover the costs of training and employing fossil preparators.

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.
