It’s not often that you get to take an emu leg out of the freezer!
For this project at Queensland Museum, we worked closely with Dr Scott Hocknull to go through some of the ‘behind the scenes’ steps involved with bringing ancient fossils from back of house to front of house.
As well as collecting, conserving and bringing the fossils to display, Scott has been experimenting, researching and hypothesizing about exactly what happened at Lake Quarry, millions of years ago.
Here’s one of the 9 vids we made for their touchscreens in the permanent exhibition “LOST CREATURES”
