It is no surprise that Australia is sometimes called ” The Land of the Lizards. This extraordinary diversity, with nearly species and counting, suggests a complex evolutionary past. A lack of a fossil record is mostly to blame. With the exception of goannas, that once grew up to six meters long , these mostly small animals leave only tiny fragments of their bodies behind when they die, making fossilization an unlikely prospect. But, in some circumstances, when particular conditions are right, these tiny remains fossilize and can be preserved for millions of years underground. A major challenge for paleontologists, whose job it is to identify and interpret fossils, has been to use these tiny remains to learn more about Australia’s natural history. This is important because understanding the contexts that generated evolutionary diversity in the past may help to reveal how species will respond to climate change in the future. Many of Australia’s reptiles and amphibians , known collectively as herpetofauna, are threatened with extinction due to global warming, habitat loss and invasive predators.
