A geologist and her kids and a group of scientists traveled to Flinders Rangers to discover rare types of ancient fossils. They were extremely succesful because Flinders Rangers is home to may different types of fossils. They found an anormous range of fossils dating back to over 5050 million years ago! These fossils are extremely unique and its a great opportunity to learn about the past animals. So far they have found over 40 different types of fossils. One of the fossils they have found is an ancient sea creature called the Dickinsonia and another one called Aspidella. This is an amazing discovery and they hope to return to Flinders Rangers to rediscover more fossils.
