After examing fossils dug up in Queensland, palaeontologists in Australia have announced the discovery of three new dinosaur species.
Writing in the journal PLOS One, they describe one of the creatures as a fearsome predator with three large slashing claws on each hand.
The other two were herbivores: one a tall giraffe-like creature, the other of stocky build like a hippopotamus.
The fossils date back nearly 100m years to the middle of the Cretaceous period.
