Dinosaurs still surprise at Inverloch
DESPITE digging for more than 20 years, dinosaur fans continue to find fossils near Inverloch.
The Dinosaur Dreaming site at The Caves boasts the highest concentration of fossils in Australia
Since annual digs started in 1994, more than 10,000 fossilised bones and teeth from the Early Cretaceous period have been excavated from the bed of an ancient river valley.
This month, volunteers and staff from Monash University and Museum Victoria continue to search for fossils at low tide.
Dig coordinator Lesley Kool of Wonthaggi was delighted to report the discovery of various theropod teeth and limb bones in the first week of digging alone.
“We could be getting a good selection of different bones, limbs, vertebrae and skull fragments, and we definitely have found four teeth,” she said.
“You never know what is going to turn up. That’s the excitement, I think. That’s what keeps people coming back.”
