Ozraptor is a carnivorous dinosaur that
walked on two legs and was much smaller than the massive Rhoetosaurus -
found near Roma in Queensland. Sauropods are the largest animals ever
found on the Earth, with long necks, small heads and herbivorous diet.
The Cretacean dinosaurs found in Australia are much more numerous.
Carnivorous dinosaurs (Theropods) include Timimus, found in southern
Australia, and Kakuru, famous for the fact that its bone turned to
opal. Minmi, found near Roma in Queensland was an
armoured dinosaur (more exactly a nodosaurid); and Kronosaurus, found
near Richmond in Queensland was
a pliosaur (a marine dinosaur). Two Ornithopods (herbivores that belong
bird-hipped, as opposed to the earliest, lizard-hipped dinosaurs) are
Muttaburrasaurus, found in the outback Queensland;
found in Victoria (which during the Cretaceous period was situated in
polar region). An example on a cretaceous Sauropod (the massive,
long-necked herbivores) is Austrosaurus, found near Winton in central
Queensland, where many new findings have been made relatively recently.
