A new large Australian sauropod -- a large, long neck and tailed herbivorous dinosaur -- has been identified along with the first fossilised dinosaur head bones ever found in Australia.

The new dinosaur, found at the Winton Formation on Maiawali and Karuwali Country in central western Queensland is named Savannasaurus elliottorum after the Elliott family, who first found a dinosaur fossil in a pile of bones while out mustering sheep on their property.
