The discovery of Dinosaur Footprints

Archeological Discoveries - The discovery of Dinosaur Footprints The footprints are thought to belong to dinosaurs found in Australia. Footprints of 24 seeds is thought to belong to dinosaurs that roamed the Antarctic since 100 million years ago.

"This is a remarkable discovery, because they represent traces of dinosaurs that lived at the poles," said Anthony Martin of Emory University who found the trail in Victoria, Australia.

According to Martin, the trail is owned by one species of carnivorous theropod dinosaur. This finding adds to a series of findings in Australia. Some time ago, in Victoria, dinosaur fossils are found. Scientists believe that the footprint belongs to ornithomimosaur. However, scientists still can not tell.

Examining the traces were found, such ornithomimosaur collection has three different sizes, from size of a cock up by crane. The prints were found on Milanesia Coast, Otways National Park, west of Melbourne. Allegedly formed when the Paleogeografi trail, when Australia was still connected to Antarctica.

"This discovery could influence the world of biology and ecology," said Martin. "Because this trail provides information on how dinosaurs interacted with the ecosystem at the poles at an important time," he explained.
According to Martin, when the trail is created 115-105 million years ago, the Earth is experiencing global warming with a temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
