Australian Age of Dinosaurs, Feb 28, 2017 - Dinosaur Stampede National Monument (Qld.) - 61 pages
Ninety-five million years ago, in what is now Central West Queensland, hundreds of small dinosaurscongregated by the edge of a lake. All of a sudden, they were interrupted by a large, meat-eating theropod dinosaur. With the lake blocking their escape, the panicking small dinosaurs ran madlyaway from the lake, past the theropod, and up a drainage channel to safety. We know that this amazing chain of events happened95 million years ago thanks to an amazing fossil site 110km south of the town of Winton. No dinosaur bones are preserved there, but fossil footprints are:more than 3,000 in all. These fossil footprints capture an amazing prehistoric moment in stone: a dinosaurstampede. Now fittingly known as Dinosaur Stampede National Monument at Lark Quarry Conservation Park, this remarkable fossil site is of international significance. It is the only dinosaur stampede everfound anywhere in the world. Come and explore the discovery, excavation, interpretation, andconservation of this wondrous fossil site, and step back in time.
