2019 Santos Dinosaur Dig Report

Thursday, June 27, 2019

Another dinosaur dig done!! As always you never quite know what to expect when you are digging up dinosaurs but this year certainly turned things on its head in terms of what we expected. We were fully expecting that the Monty site may dry up and then we would move onto another site close by. The unexpected happened and we found ourselves moving down the bone bed onto a bone jamb of beautifully preserved dinosaur bone all safely encased in the surrounding mudstone. Not only this, we found another dinosaur, smaller than the first one found in this bone bed two years ago, so, for now, we have Mr and Mrs Monty!  ...read more

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between megafauna fossils and dinosaur fossils?

Dinosaurs are reptiles that went extinct 64 million years ago. They grew to gigantic sizes.  They lived in a time when Australia was a very different place to what it is today, and part of the ancient landmass called Gondwana. The Eromanga dinosaurs are estimated to be 95-98 million years old and lived during the late Cretaceous.

Megafauna are the group of animals that evolved after the dinosaurs died.  They were very large marsupials, reptiles and flightless birds and went extinct about 20,000 years ago.  Some of their descendants still exist today in much smaller forms such as kangaroos, wombats, komodo dragons and crocodiles.  The Eulo megafauna lived during Pleistocene approximately 50,000 to 100,000 years ago.
