Scientists in Australia have discovered a huge graveyard of ancient, rhino-sized mega-wombats.

The site in the outback in Queensland is thought to contain up to 50 diprotodon skeletons which could be between 100,000 and 200,000-years-old.

Pigeon-toed and with a backward-facing pouch large enough to carry an adult human, Mr Hocknull likened a diprotodon to “a cross between a wombat and a bear but the size of a rhinoceros”.
