Recently bought a couple of Grallator dinosaur footprints. A Podokesaurus South Hadley, MA in the Connecticut River Valley. and one from La Grand-Combe, the Mont Lozère, France.

Curious to see what others have.

So much for my second footprint. What the heck is wrong with some people. The seller in France accidently broke the track before they shipped it. They then thought it was ok to just glue it back together, ship it and not tell me they broke the track. It was a nice track. I am in the process of getting a refund.

I now I just have one nice footprint.

This is my favorite in my collection. It has 9 tracks and a few partials.

This is one of mine, found in Central Connecticut -

Possibly a Grallator, but I am not positive.

overprint

Early Jurassic,

East Berlin Formation,

Newark Supergroup,

Connecticut.

Had to outline it, as it is very hard to see in photos.

I'll try to get pics posted up of some of the others in my collection.

Regards,

A little touch of pledge floor shine on the print will make it contrast a touch. Usw a little artist brush to apply. I used a little on my new plate with two Eubrontes prints. Someone on here mentioned a museum that uses it for contrast.post-16815-0-19307000-1430250158_thumb.jpg

Used to be called future floor wax and is listed in a number of articles online. It's reversible.

Here is something different a Coal Nodule foot cast ( 17" (43 cm ) square). This Nodule comes from the Willow Creek Coal Mine, Utah which is in the Blackhawk Formation upper cretaceous. This type of cast is associated with a Hadrosaur type dinosaur. These casts are found on the roof surface of a mine and were made by animals which walked in the peat on the surface of a swamp; their footprints were filled by mud, silt or sand during the flooding of a local river.

Love those coal tracks. My grandfather was a miner and he had quite the collection. They bring back memories. We donated his to a local small town museum after he passed away a few years back. Thanks for sharing.

Yes they are a favorite of mine and come in all different shapes. They were actually a hazard to miners since they were on the roof of the mines, fall and hit the workers. They are hard to come by today.

So, the workers were technically the only people in history to be stood on by a dinosaur? :P
