Austrosaurus mckillopi, one of Queensland's long-necked sauropods, has been rediscovered thanks to a team of Australian and British palaeontologists.

The Early Cretaceous period (104 million year old) dinosaur was first discovered in 1932 on Kunjen country, northwest of Richmond, Queensland - then it was lost.


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.


For those not familiar with the CV of mining billionaire Clive Palmer, you could be forgiven for thinking this sounds a bit out there, but sources close to the man himself are reporting that Palmer wants to clone a dinosaur from DNA and release it in his resort in Coolum, Queensland.
