This photo taken at the Australian Museum in Sydney on June 21, 2012 shows Brendan Atkins, publications co-ordinator and editor at the museum, standing alongside a reconstructed model of a "diprotodon", an ancient rhino-sized mega-wombat. Australian scientists on June 21, unveiled the biggest-ever graveyard of Diprotodons, with the site potentially holding valuable clues on the species' extinction. The remote fossil deposit in Australia's outback Queensland state is thought to contain up to 50 diprotodon skeletons including a huge specimen named Kenny, whose jawbone alone is 70 centimetres (28 inches) long.
