Actualy, the footprint contained a message (in the Dinosaur alphabet) from
a time-traveling Deinosuchus linguist (who was fluent in Dinosaur) to the
Tyrannosaurus (or rather Tyrannosaura) warning her not to bite the
Edmontosaurus' tail, a message which was recieved, alas, too late... the
edmontosaur was too busy worrying about whether it should be called
Trachodon, Anatosaurus, or Edmontosaurus to notice.
