What an unbelievable find this was, a saber- toothed cat remains found right here in Australia. This is a first, scientists were taken aback by this find, and nobody realized these cats were even in Australia. The skull is very small, about the size of a normal sized cat, except for the huge fangs, which are half the length of its skull.
Scientists will now use acid to dissolve a huge chunk of rock which contained the skull, in the hope of finding the remains of its body.
I find this fascinating, there is so much more to be discovered out in Riversleigh, and not a lot of people know about this place, yet there has already been a lot of fossils found there. I have never been to Riversleigh, but I think it would be a very interesting place to visit.
