At the time when Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica were all joined together - about 110 million years ago - the animals here were wandering around Lightning Ridge in NSW.
One is called Fulgurotherium austrolei and is about the size of a German Shepherd dog, about one to one and a half metres long. It has small sharp feet, with claws as long as half a finger. Fulgurotherium is a small ornithopod, a type of plant-eating dinosaurs. Small ornithopods were remarkably common in Cretaceous Australia, particularly in southern Victoria, and may have travelled in small herds or flocks. Dinosaur burrows, possibly made by small ornithopods, were recently discovered in Victoria. Perhaps Fulgurotherium or other small ornithopods spent the coldest months of the year underground.
Two meat-eating theropods next to it are as long as a car and have a birdlike beak, sharp teeth and open mouths showing their tongues. There are 3 claws as long as a finger on each foot. They look like fast runners. The models have been painted blue with stripes.
