Prehistoric Giants: The Megafauna of Australia
Step back to a time when giant goannas and marsupial lions stalked the Australian bush. Imagine herds of two-tonne Diprotodon roaming the plains, and flocks of flightless ducks bigger than emus striding across the shallow inland sea. Prehistoric Giants, the second in the Museum Victoria Nature series, is a guide to the Australian megafauna of the Pleistocene—a time when humans shared the land with giants. Richly illustrated and brought to life by the art of Peter Trusler and others, Prehistoric Giants will reveal an Australia you’ve never seen before.
