Good Friday Turns Into Good Dino Track Day

I have been asked many times to verify what someone thinks are dino tracks.

Many times they turn out to be equipment scratch/cuts or natural water formed stones.

Never did I ever think I would have permission to find and recover a dino footprint.

We did not have to cut them out or cast them the natural casts were laying there just waiting to be picked!!!!!

We found two sets of trails going North and South.

30+ and counting prints and casts.

About half have been exposed to heavy wash and are obscure but they are there none the less.

As we explored the area we did manage to find the strata and turn some stones and voila there they are.

More to come Private property with permission.

I am stoked to the max.

The one pictured bottom left is one that I turned a stone and there it was! [i got to keep this one]

I left it with him to keep the find together.

I found several but it was his discovery and he deserves the credit.

This is the same guy that found the starfish ["Copellaster" Adamsi] in the Britton member of the Eagleford in Dallas Co. Tx. [s. Adams]

My preliminary guess would be Hadrosaur prints..

I will post more pics 'in situ" when he sends me the ones he took. [As usual I had no camera with me]

These pics were taken in his front yard.
