New dinosaur discovered in Australia

Australian palaeontologists have discovered a new species of dinosaur on a sheep ranch in Queensland.

The fossil remains of the large plant-eating sauropod, nicknamed Zac, are about 97 million years old. They were found near the town of Eromanga, in a fossil-rich area that was once covered by a vast inland sea.

Palaeontologists say the find confirms Australia’s importance as a centre for dinosaur discovery.
