Scott Hocknull talks passionately about his love of dinosaurs. Scott works at the Australian Age of Dinosaurs and as Senior Curator at Queensland Museum. In between 'digs', Scott shares theories about how the fossils of plant-eating 'Matilda' and meat-eating 'Banjo' came to be together. He also talks about a recent discovery of a fragment of a tooth. This came from a very large meat-eating dinosaur and could be Australia's answer to T. rex.

This is a Storylines Q150 digital story. This digital story was made by the State Library of Queensland with funding from the Queensland Government. It is a legacy of the Q150 celebrations in 2009.
