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

Friday, July 27, 2018

Since the chance find in 2004 for by a young 14 year old boy, the dream for a home to house the arid collection of fossils from Eromanga's  surrounds began. Now 14 years on, that dream is about to become a reality.

Dinosaur Dig; Done and Dusted

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.
