South Australia’s only dinosaur

Feb 25 - 10:00 AM - Apr 1 - 5:00 PM

South Australian Museum

Free

Come and see an opalised dinosaur toe bone, which was dug up in Andamooka in the early 1970s!

Dinosaur bones in South Australia are extremely rare, with only two others known to date which are also in the Museum’s collection. During the Early Cretaceous period (around 110 million years ago) when dinosaurs roamed the land, most of South Australia was under water, being part of the ancient Eromanga Sea.

This special bone is on display in the Museum’s Opal Fossil gallery on level three of the Museum
