Final-2 logo dig deeper monstrous creatures of the sea

Dig Deeper: Monstrous Creatures of The Sea is an interactive digital excavation that takes us into the ground and beneath the waves to meet the marine creatures that inhabited the waters a hundred million years ago when the dinosaurs ruled the land. Examine fossils found on the sea floor, and solve a 100-million-year-old underwater crime. Who and what killed the Erongasaurus?

Let's help Dr. Scott Hocknull find fossils buried deep in the soil and explore a real dig site from Queensland, Australia brought to you by our Inside Explorer 3D technology. Imagine that the sliders are your shovel and dig away.

Paleontologist Dr. Hocknull is there to guide your visitors through the dig site and down to the very bones of two prehistorical sea monsters. With the help of fossils and 3D technology paleontologists of today can rebuild the face and bodies of extinct species and create 3d replicas of what these monstrous creatures might have looked like. Turns out Platypterygius has dorsal and tail fins just like sharks and dolphins of today.
