Beschreibung Dinosaur Stampede National Monument at Lark Quarry Conservation Park in Australia is considered to be the site of the world's only known record of a dinosaur stampede, with fossilised footprints are interpreted as a predator stalking and causing a stampede of around 150 two-legged dinosaurs. This interpretation has been challenged in recent years, with evidence suggesting it may have been a natural river crossing In 2015 Shire of Winton invited the Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum of Natural History to take over the operation of public guided tours at Dinosaur Stampede National Monument. This joint initiative, implemented in April 2016, provides visitors with a broader understanding of unique Australian dinosaurs and the world they inhabited.The Lark Quarry site is about 110km south west of the western Queensland town of Winton.OriginThe traditional account is that a group of perhaps 180 chicken-sized coelurosaurs and Bantam to emu-sized ornithopods were disturbed by the arrival of a single much larger theropod, perhaps Australovenator or a related form, which may have been up to 6 metres long with 50-centimetre feet. The different track types are placed within the ichnotaxa Skartopus (coelurosaurs), Wintonopus (ornithopods) and Tyrannosauropus (large theropod).
