Hey guys, I saw this listed as a ornithopod footprint. Do you guys think it’s real? Also what dinosaur could it be? Thanks!

Looks more like theropod to me.

The rule of thumb is that if the print is wider than long it's ornithopod and if it's longer than wide then it's theropod.

I agree with @LordTrilobite it’s a Theropod, but not sure how real it could be.

@Troodon it’s from Massachusetts, sorry the forum wouldn’t allow me to insert another pic

Thanks red matrix is odd from there.  You can add as many photos as you need in the reply section

This actually looks more like a painted cast, to me. 

I am very skeptical of this item.  :unsure: 

 

As Troodon indicated, the color of the matrix is wrong - and the "matrix" is shiny.

The prints from Massachusetts are in red to reddish brown shales, sandstones, and mudstones. 

 

I would skip it, unless the price is very cheap.

It looks very shiny, could be coating in something or a replica.

Most definitely a replica, I swear I've seen this before available as so.
