Lark Quarry, 110km south of Winton in central Queensland, is the site of the world's only known record of a dinosaur stampede. (A 'stampede' occurs when a herd of animals run in alarm or panic.) Numerous 'fossil' dinosaur footprints or tracks are preserved there. This makes it a most important scientific discovery. It helps scientists to understand more about dinosaurs and their behaviour. The trackways reveal an important chapter in the story of Australia's heritage.
Muttaburrasaurus was a large, plant-eating ornithopod from the Early Cretaceous of eastern Australia. It is one of the most complete dinosaurs from Australia - only Minmi is more complete - and the first to be cast and mounted for display. Muttaburrasaurus had an unusual skull with a long, rounded snout that had a hollow internal chamber, perhaps to increase the volume of its calls or enhance its sense of smell
