One Big Footprint

I love when the scientists make finds like these, makes me wish I had become a palaeontologist. :D

What you are looking at is believed to be quite possibly the track of a T-Rex or more formally a Tyrannosaurus Rex. It was discovered in Montana in an area known for interesting dinosaur finds. Here is a snippet from the BBC:

A British palaeontologist has found what he thinks is a preserved Tyrannosaurus rex footprint.

The metre-square, three-toed track was discovered in the Badlands of Montana, US, an arid landscape that has yielded many of the finest dinosaur specimens.

Dr Phil Manning, from the Manchester Museum, University of Manchester, first saw the impression last year.

He returned to the US in July to study the print further, and now plans to publish details in a science journal.

Dr Manning said that finding dinosaur trackways was an important addition to our understanding of how the great beasts lived more than 65 million years ago.
