<i>From Dinosaurs to Diprotodons</i> is all about Australia's amazing fossils.
<p>Can you explain what a fossil is and where in Australia they have been found?</p>
<p>In <i>From Dinosaurs to Diprotodons </i>you'll be able to read all about fourteen places in Australia at which history has been preserved in the form of dinosaur fossils.</p>
<p>Start with an introduction to the prehistoric eras, and learn how to fossick for fossils (in caves, cliffs and by the sea).</p>
<p>Then explore different Australian locations and the types of dinosaurs found there, from polar dinosaurs at Dinosaur Cove, to Thingodonts and Fangaroos at Riversleigh.</p>
<p>You'll discover that many fossils at Lightening Ridge are made from opals, Titanosaurs (like those found in Queensland) were bigger than buses and semi-trailers, and megafauna fossils were known by Aboriginal people as bunyips.</p>
<p>And don't miss the glossary, or the list of places to go to explore Australian fossils further. </p>
<p>Written by zoologist Danielle Clode, and published by Museums Victoria, who have a large palaeontology collection, <i>From Dinosaurs to Diprotodons</i> is packed full of dinosaur drawings, maps, and trivia — enough for even the most avid dinosaur buffs, and great for school projects.</p>
