Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Lower Cretaceous Lizards

According to the authors1 Australian lizard (lepidosaur) remains are very rare. Among the known specimens are an incomplete humerus from the Wonthaggi Formation near Cape Patterson, Victoria that is believed to be from a large lizard, though its affinities are uncertain, from the Griman Creek Formation at Lightning Ridge, what have been described as enigmatic sections of knobbly dermal bone that have been attributed to a large animal that was lizard-like, though which animal is unknown, have been found.
