    Some of the giants of the dinosaur family may have originated in South America and crossed over Antarctica to Australia about 100 million years ago.

    The dinosaurs were able to make the journey when a spell of warming allowed passage over frozen land bridges between the continents.

    Two fossil discoveries in Australia shed new light on this theory.

    Both specimens are sauropods - a group of large, herbivorous dinosaurs with long necks and small heads.

    Further classified as titanosaurs, they are among the largest dinosaurs ever to walk the Earth. Follow link to read more......
