New Mexican Dino Footprints

A Mexican man has discovered dozens of dinosaur footprints dating back up to 110 million years along the banks of a dried river, scientists said on Tuesday.

Biologist Oscar Polaco said more studies needed to be done to determine what species of dinosaur the fossilized prints, each one up to 60 cm across, belonged to. "At the moment we can confirm these are footprints that belong to dinosaurs that lived during the early Cretaceous," the scientist said.

Last year scientists identified 30 other dinosaur prints in the same region, an area famous for the large numbers of fossils deposited there. LINK
