Share

Underneath the waves of Bayside, the fossils of giant predators that once swam on our coastline are slowly being revealed.

From the largest shark that ever existed to the 'Demon-ducks of Doom', these fossils are being discovered by palaeontologist Ben Francischelli and a team of citizen scientists.

In this presentation, Ben will be revealing the 'deadliest ocean that ever existed' and bring along a number of fossils that are changing the way in which we understand prehistoric Bayside.
