Some years ago a Central Queensland farmer recovered a number of unusual bones on his property. Believing he had made an important find, he gave the bones to university palaeontologists in Brisbane.

The bones caused a sensation among Australian palaeontologists; not because they were from the giant Australian monitor lizard Megalania prisca, Owen, believed extinct at least several thousand years, but because they were as recent as 300 years old!

This disclosure implies that, if these huge monsters were still roaming Queensland's interior a mere 300 years ago, claimed sightings of these reptiles in modern times in remote areas of Australia suggest Megalania is far from extinct. Needless to say, the find was quickly hushed up.
