Paleo News – Motherlode of Dinosaur Bones Unveiled & Ancient Giant Wombat Identified

An absolute motherlode of Jurrasic Age dinosaur bones are only now getting the attention they deserve after sitting in storage at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) for 86 years.
The museum has just published a full account of the historic excavations discovered at Howe Quarry in Wyoming, US, by world famous palaeontologist Barnum Brown.
AMNH has also finally identified bones, discovered in South Australia 50 years ago, that belonged to an ancient wombat (Mukupirna) which weighed between 143 and 171 kilograms.

Adelaide Hills palaeontologist Paul Willis joins Jennie Lenman to have a chat about the stories featured in his new palaeopictures video bulletin on YouTube.
