Immerse yourself in enriching and rewarding experiences that take you into the world of prehistoric Australia. You can meet Australia’s largest dinosaur, visit a dinosaur dig site, join the dinosaur or megafauna dig team, learn to prepare fossils from the age of dinosaurs and the age of megafauna and stay on-site at Cooper’s Country Lodge.
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.
