To celebrate National Dinosaur Day on 7 May 2020, we are excited to share with you a look at some 3D models of Australia’s favourite dinosaurs that our team of palaeontologists have been working on.
Here’s a special message from Dr Scott Hocknull showcasing Australia’s most iconic dinosaur Muttaburrsaurus.
Take a close up look at Australia’s most complete Jurassic dinosaur – Rhoetosaurus brownei – a long-necked plant-eating sauropod. View the 3D model here.
Queensland Museum palaeontologist, Dr Scott Hocknull found the first bone of this meat eater dinosaur in 2006 and scientifically named Australia’s most complete meat-eating dinosaur, Australovenator wintonensis in 2009. View the 3D model here.
Meet the only species of ichthyosaur so far known from the Eromanga Sea – growing to up to 5 metres long, it’s Platypterygius australis which lived in the Cretaceous Period approximately 105-100 million years ago. View the 3D model here.
You might recognise this guy from our Lost Creatures exhibition – it’s Muttaburrsaurus langdoni – Australia’s largest ornithopod dinosaur which lived around 103 million years ago. View the 3D model here.
This small armoured dinosaur with spikes on its neck, body and tail is Kunburrasaurus ieversi – Australia’s most complete dinosaur skeleton. Have you seen it in our Lost Creatures exhibition? View the 3D model here.
