Polar Dinosaurs In Australia

The Christian Science Monitor reports in an article entitled “In hot pursuit of polar dinosaurs” about the work being done by Dr. Tom Rich and his colleagues collecting and researching dinosaurs in southeastern Australia. On a narrow stretch of beach two hours southeast of Melbourne they are finding one of the most species-rich collection of polar dinosaur fossils in the world. 115 million years ago this portion of Australia lay well within the Antarctic Circle.
