Those are amazing! :wub: Somehow they are better than an actual skeleton at conveying the image of living animals.

Ric, 

I was taking a closer look today. 
Does this one show actual skin impressions?? 

It sure looks like it, to me.  :unsure:

Hey Tim, I shot a close up of the track in question and didn't see any highlights of skin impressions? I believe the way the pic was shot, the angles and shadows cast upon the stone surface may have looked like the impressions you speak of...It does look like it when you point them out on this picture. Here is the pic I shot with a magnifying glass. Does it look the same on this shot?

Sorry @Rockin' Ric , I missed you posting thes. 


It still looks like some interesting looking lines in the lower palm area. 

I would take some play doh, and try to gently press it into the print, to see if you can pick up any detail, that way. ;)
