The Victorian Government through Museums Victoria is currently seeking public voting for a FOSSIL EMBLEM to permanently represent VICTORIA
The choices are all from various locations in Victoria and are all important to the history of evolution.
OUR CHOICE IS PELAGORNIS
This was an ocean going hunter with a wingspan up to 6 metres and a beak full of fang like teeth
The only place in Australia where this fossil has been found is in Bayside Melbourne. See our Pelagornis page on this site.
The link below will direct you to to the Museums Victoria site with more information on Pelagornis.
