Nothing will tricera-top this!

Meet some of the many HUGE and ... not so huge dinosaurs on display at WA Museum Boola Bardip!



Carnotaurus was a carnivorous dinosaur that measured 7.5 to 8 metres in length and weighed 1.3 tonnes!


Eoraptor lunensis

Small, lightly built dinosaur with a slender body that grew to about 1m.

Eoraptor lunensis is thought to be an omnivore which would sprint and, upon catching its prey, would use claws and sharp teeth to tear it apart!

Argentinosaurus Huinculensis

Based on computer modelling, Argetinosaurus had an estimated mass of 83 tonnes (91 short tons).

Also, given how big and heavy it was, it had a walking speed of just over 2 m/s (7.2 km/h, 5 mph).

Argetinosaurus was a herbivore.

Has to be seen to be believed!
