Ammonite fossil: These creatures lived between 240 - 65 million years ago, when they became extinct along with the dinosaurs. 'ammonite' (usually lower-case) originates from the Greek Ram-horned god called Ammon. Ammonites belong to a group of predators known as cephalopods, which includes their living relatives the octopus, squid, cuttlefish and nautilus. Ammonites moved by jet propulsion, expelling water through a funnel-like opening to propel themselves in the opposite direction.
One of the best dinosaur trackway sites in the world is preserved at Lark Quarry, 110 km southwest of Winton, central western Queensland. Over 3000 individual footprints are preserved on a trackway surface, roughly the size of a tennis court. It is the most concentrated set of dinosaur footprints in the world.
