Australian palaeontologists say they have discovered three new species of dinosaur in the northern state of Queensland.
They describe one of the creatures as a fearsome predator with three large slashing claws in each hand. The other two were herbivores: one tall giraffe-like creature, the other stocky like a hippopotamus. Dave Elliott, the Chairman of the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum said, “The announcement of one new Australian dinosaur is world news. The announcement of three is out of this world.” The fossils were discovered in rocks known as the Winton Formation in Western Queensland.
