Very Eager Volunteers

Tuesday, April 03, 2018

Imagine the mammoth task of being placed in front of a bucket of megafauna mud and being told to find fossils the size of a pin head. Well this was the task ahead for our newest volunteer Steve Young. A commercial photographer from coughs harbor enjoys the small finer things in life, like taking photos of minuscule fungi’s. Luckily for us, Steve wanted to develop he interest in microscopic things and share his skills with us and help build our collection. After two weeks of working through less than a millimeter in size sediments, Steve’s collection of finds was extensive and exciting and including that of a partial lower jaw from a small 100,000-year-old Gekkonid. With a heavy heart Steve left us and will be returning again later in the year.   ...read more

After two years of waiting the ENHM team are back at it again, at the Eromanga Dinosaur Dig.

This is not only the first dig since ENHM has been open, but the first Dino Dig that we are taking on paid participants.

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.
