AUSTRALIA DINOSAUR PICTURES: Three New Species Found

Paleontologists uncover two rib bones from the newly discovered plant-eating dinosaur Matilda in the Australian outback town of Winton in 2008.

Skeletons of Matilda and a carnivorous dinosaur dubbed Banjo were found buried together in an ancient billabong, or oxbow lake.

The intermingling of their bones suggests the two dinosaurs died at the same time, Hocknull said, and few disturbances to the site over millions of years kept the fossils well preserved.
