Mashable - The Dinosaur Hunters

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Eromanga Natural History Museum had a visit last year by the Mashable team to cover what we have been doing out here in outback Australia. In a 2 part series discover all about our excavations, our town, and our museum as well profiles on our people and staff that contribute to our discoveries.

Part I: In a remote corner of outback Australia, prehistoric bones are being unearthed

Part II: The women who clean prehistoric bones in the Australian outback 


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.
