The world's newest dinosaur, found in outback Queensland, has been named more than a decade after the barrel-chested herbivore's fossils were first found.
The six-metre tall, long-necked creature has been named Savannasaurus ellittorum after grazier David Elliott , chairman of the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum in Queensland, who found the fossils in the 2005.
Scientists hope the discovery will shed light on the origins of Australian dinosaurs.
