MIGALOO WORLD’S FIRST MEGA FAUNA DETECTION DOG.
It gives me great pleasure to advise that Woman’s Day Magazine will release the incredible story on Migaloo and I want the Migaloo & mnk9 followers to be the first to know. A fossil was found in western Qld by a traditional owner and was sent to me so I can attempt to train Migaloo on it. After 3 months of training and Migaloo successfully indicating on the fossil during training sessions we went to out back Qld to the site where the fossil was found. Migaloo in the first minute located fossils and as we continued she located several more including buried. We collected only six of the fossils that migaloo had found and we took them to the University of Qld to Palaeontologist Dr Steve Salisbury for identification and dating. Dr Salisbury later confirmed The fossils were from a large kangaroo (indeterminate macropodoid) and a Diprotodon (Giant Wom…bat) and the age is between 2.6 and 5.3 MILLION YEARS OLD.
Migaloo is now the first and only dog in history trained to be able to successfully locate mega fauna fossils. So as well as been the World’s first Bio Archaeology detection dog and the world record holder of the oldest human remains find in history (600 years old and 6 feet deep) Migaloo is now the World’s first Mega Fauna detection dog and the record holder of the oldest fossil find by a detection dog of up to 5.3 million years old. Migaloo is currently been trained on 20 Million year old Dinosaur fossils and later this year we will be conducting further tests. This is a wonderful and exciting time for Palaeontologists and Archaeologists around the world as this will give them a new tool and also open up many great opportunities for detection dog trainers.
One day in will be normal to see detection dogs at historic digs trained on fossil, bone, pottery, glass etc. Attached is the video we recorded of the fossil finds that will explain everything in detail, we still have a long road ahead. But also let me know what you think and if you can also do me one last favour go to our Facebook page Please hit the like, and Share this with your friends. Lets see how many LIKES we can get before the Woman’s Day Media release tomorrow. Proud to be Australian Gary Jackson mnk9.com
Migaloo indicated on an old find that was placed 4 months earlier so the question was asked was it memory or residue odour that Migaloo indicated on? So we conducted a test, on September 11, 2012 we place a piece of human bone in a search area for 2 hours and 4 months later on January 11, 2013 we do a search with Migaloo, which is also the first time she has been in this search area.. So what happened? Did Migaloo indicate on a small piece of human bone that was placed there for only 2 hours 4 months earlier? So what is your answer “Is it memory or residue”. Now watch the video.
