Dinosaurs Fighting Depression in the Bush

Thursday, December 01, 2016

Dinosaurs are fighting depression in the bush. That's according to some locals from Eromanga.

It's being called 'the new CWA' with women getting together, not to bake scones, but instead, to chip away at an ancient dinosaur bone.

Fiona Ferguson from Belombre Station and Wendy Groves from Cooma, Eromanga sat down with Elly Bradfield in a dry creek bed and explained how.

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.
