Tony recently gave a paper at a conference over here about sauropod tracks
from Broome, WA. There were really big, as big as anything overseas or even
bigger. I am not sure about humoungous theropods but, without invoking size
envy, everything is bigger and better down here!

I think Tony and swamp are in the field at the moment but I am sure they
can provide more deatils on their return.
