Description

Rhoetosaurus was a sauropod dinosaur and its name comes from Rhoetos, a mythological Greek giant, and saurus meaning lizard. One of Australia’s largest dinosaurs was Rhoetosaurus brownei, a giant plant-eater that lived in Queensland about 190 million years ago, during the Lower Jurassic Period (Toarcian Stage). Rhoetosaurus is known from a single specimen discovered in 1924. Its fossilised bones were found in a rocky gully on Taloona Station, near Roma in the south of the state. The dinosaur was named after the station manager, A.J. Browne, who sent some of the bones to the Queensland Museum and later helped recover more of the skeleton, including parts of the neck, back, tail, ischium, ribs and femur.
