Tarongasaurs have risen!
Hi Wild Squad Agents,
Are you wild about the wild? Me too! I’m Wild Squad Agent Sadie and today I am taking you back in time to long ago, 230 million years ago, when a new kind of reptile arrived on Earth. Up until 65 million years ago the ground shook for the mightiest dinosaurs walked the land. Dinosaurs were the main animals on Earth for over 100 million years! Believed to have died out from a HUGE meteorite colliding with Earth followed by a huge volcanic eruption, dinosaurs are still among us today. From the Saltwater Crocodile and the Cassowary to the humble duck and the Turtle, make sure to visit Taronga this summer to see ancient creatures and to witness the Tarongasaurs rise!
Always For the Wild,
