The Femur Has Arrived

Friday, November 04, 2016

We are very excited to announce that the femur has arrived and is now on display at the museum!!  :) The children from the local school were very excited to be one of the first groups to check it out.

Thanks to everyone who has donated to the crowdfunding campaign. It is still running so its not too late to donate. Without everyone's kind donations we wouldn't be able to begin the process of replicating #Australiaslargestdinosaur "Cooper".

If you want to get involved and continue the process of bringing cooper to life, check out or crowd funding campaign here.


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.
