  Rob explaining the Minmi to American students

"Of course, it was only 3 months later when the brothers discovered Australia?s best preserved dinosaur relic - period. That happened to be a giant armadillo-like creature called the Minmi. It was less than 3 kms from the original find.
The Qld Museum were then given the fossils for 5 years to enable study.
Next came the question, what to do with the skeletons when they were returned?
In Rob's words, 'I could sell them for more money than I, my children and grandchildren would make in a lifetime; or, I could give them to the public.'"

Address: Kronosaurus Korner, Richmond
