Riversleigh Fossil Dig

Today we are going to a Top Secret location with a team of Paleontologists from the University of NSW. Once a year the Paleontologists come to Riversleigh and dig for fossils. Sir David Attenborough claims that Riversleigh is the fourth best fossil dig in the world at present.

One of the highlights of the day was finding a jaw bone that belonged to a Marsupial Lion that roamed Australia 25 million years ago.

This was a very exciting day.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

This week we are at the Willie Creek Pearl Farm, north of Broome in Western Australia. Pearls are grown inside oyster shells and take two years to grow. The shells can be used up to four times and each time the make a bigger pearl. So the really big pearls take at least eight years to grow.

We had heaps of fun at this place, so we hope you like it too.
