Our Merry Message From the ENHM Staff

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As 2018 draws to close we would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. The museum is now closed to the public from the 14th of December 2018 to the 4th of March 2019. We look forward to seeing many developments in the new year with construction of our next stage and employment of new staff members all kicking it off.   


Thank you to our Lab Coordinator Jo Pegler for the Night Exposure of Knotosaurus, Eromanga, Qld, 4480.

 


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.
