The biggest dinosaur footprint

This has nothing to do with the previous post.

Reported by the BBC: Large Abelisaurus Dinosaur dinosaur footprint found in Bolivia

One of the largest ever dinosaur footprints has been found in Bolivia.

It is more than a metre across – and is thought to have belonged to a type of dinosaur called an Abelisaurus.

It was unearthed in a site near the Bolivian capital, Sucre.

That’s quite big. As was the Abelisaurus, which was thought to measure about 7-9 metres long but this footprint suggests more like 10-12 meters.

The most complete specimen of the similar Tyrannosaurus measures up to a similar 12.3 metres.

    Farmers would have trouble rounding those up for docking.

    Why, Zedd, what big feet you have ! No wonder you were going barefoot, buying shoes must be a nightmare.
