What are some examples of fossil sites where land-living fossils end up in the sea, off the coast-line of an island?
Two sites in Australia, at opposite ends of the continent, that have such fossils are Cable Beach in Broome, Western Australia (in the north west of the Australia) and Dinosaur Cove, in Victoria (in the south east of Australia).
The fossils in Broome can only be seen at low tide and are of dinosaur footprints from the Cretaceous period, about 130 million years ago.
Dinosaur Cove has yielded bones that lead to the discovery of hypsilophodontid-like dinosaurs as Leaellynasaura amicagraphica and Atlascopcosaurus loadsi, and a Coelurosaur, as well as fragments of what may be a caenagnathid (relatives of the Oviraptors)
