DINOSAUR FOOTPRINTS

DINOSAUR FOOTPRINT

These footprints were found in late Triassic / Early Jurassic Period sediments from about 200 million years ago. At that time, the supercontinent of Pangea was rifting apart and the Atlantic Ocean was beginning to form. Mudflats along the western shore of this new seaway provided the perfect environment for the preservation of the footprints of dinosaurs that passed along the beaches. 

Trace fossils such as tracks, or footprints are given different scientific names from the animals that made them, because it is difficult or impossible to be sure which animal made which track. However, structure of the foot and shape of the footprint can allow some educated guesses. Some scientists have suggested that Eubrontes is the footprint of Dilophosaurus, and Grallator is the track of a small theropod dinosaur like Coelophysis . These tracks exhibit three toes, like those of birds, and were originally thought to have been bird tracks.

The study of trace fossils is the field of ichnology. Fossil footprints tell us much  about the shape, size, stance, and speed of otherwise unknown prehistoric animals. In addition to offering clues about the behavior of individual animals, trace fossils can provide insights into group behavior.
