It was found among an “unprecedented” 21 different types of dinosaur tracks and dwarfs a metre-long footprint discovered in the Gobi desert by a team of Japanese and Mongolian researchers.
Palaeontologists from the University of Queensland and James Cook University said their find was the most diverse array of dino footprints in the world.
He added: "Among the tracks is the only confirmed evidence for stegosaurs in Australia. There are also some of the largest dinosaur tracks ever recorded."
It was almost lost, with the Western Australian government in 2008 selecting the area as the preferred site for a massive liquid natural gas processing precinct.

I think climate change will encourage larger growth out of the species on earth. The warmer it gets, the more carbon that becomes available, which means more vegetation converting it to oxygen, which makes animalia larger.
Since the end of the last ice age humans have consistently gotten larger/taller. Its how the Earth self corrects. As the larger creatures and plants die, they lock carbon up into the soil.
