If dinosaurs wore shoes changes are this dinosaur had a hard
time finding a pair to fit.
Paleontologists in northwestern Australia have discovered dinosaur
footprints that were 1.7 metres long.
The prints were from a sauropod. Sauropods were an infraorder
of saurischian dinosaurs. They had very long necks, long tails, small heads,
and four thick, pillar-like legs.
The tracks were believed to be 127 to 140 million-years-old
and were discovered on a 25-kilometre stretch of the Dampier Peninsula in
Western Australia, otherwise known as "Australia's Jurassic Park."
The Dampier Peninsula is a peninsula located north of Broome
and Roebuck Bay in Western Australia. It is surrounded by the Indian Ocean to
the west and north, and King Sound to the east. The northernmost part of the
peninsula is Cape Leveque.
