Dinosaur Footprint Cast?

Recommended Posts

jacob

Hello, 

I found this last year during a fossil hunting trip in the Bendricks, South-Wales. I know their are several track ways and some 200+ footprints embedded within the rock around the local areas, however I have not seen a footprint cast from this locality either (that I know of). I have tried finding a contact for the geology department at the national museum based in Cardiff, though it has been unsucessful. Any light you can shed on this would be much appreciated! It may be just a conveniently shaped rock, however it is always worth asking.

Apologies for the picture, I've had to rely on someone else for the picture - it is slightly larger than than palm size. 

Local rocks are Triassic - approx 220 million years

I'm thinking it is just a suggestivly shaped rock.

Looks like a suggestive rock to me as well, and just as well, it is a protected site and if it was a footprint it would be illegal to remove it.

Geological. Not the correct morphology. Even if it was, it'd be illegal to remove a dinosaur track specimen.

It was loose? It wasn't in situ or I would have left it

Not to worry. 

It's just an interestingly shaped rock.

I can see it as a bioeroded cobble. Bioerosion :)
