"Extremely rare" fossils from a swordfish-like creature which lived 100 million years ago have been discovered in the Australian outback.
Two families on holiday unearthed the prehistoric predator at a free fossil-finding site in north-west Queensland.
The remains are thought to be from the Australopachycormus hurleyi, a 3m-long ray-finned fish with a pointed snout.
"Part of what makes this specimen so special is that it is so complete," Dr Patrick Smith told the BBC.
