Interview With Robyn Mackenzie

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

A new megafauna site and another beautifully preserved megafauna bone bed with dozens of bones unearthed this year. Many more bones are still to be recovered in coming years from this site. Listen to Robyn in this interview conducted on the recent Eulo megafauna dig with ABC Western Qld, Ollie Wykeham.



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.
