ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “One of the largest dinosaurs in the world has been found on an outback cattle property | ABC News” – below is their description.
Robyn Mackenzie and her husband Stuart were mustering cattle on their property near Eromanga in south-west Queensland when they discovered dinosaur bones in 2006.
Now, after 15 years of painstaking excavation, the Eromanga Natural History Museum has officially identified the skeleton as the largest dinosaur ever found in Australia.
Ms Mackenzie, a palaeontologist who runs the Eromanga museum, said those first pieces of bone offered them no sense of the size of the dinosaur they would eventually unearth.
“It wouldn’t have entered our mind that we were about to deal with an animal that was the largest in Australia and one of the largest in the world,” she said.
The dinosaur has been scientifically named Australotitan cooperensis.ABC News (Australia) YouTube Channel
