If you open your hymnal -- that is, your copy of Gregory S. Paul's
_Predatory Dinosaurs of the World_ -- to page 134, illustration 5-3, you
will see a depiction of the alleged "human footprint" compared to a
digitigrade and plantigrade theropod track. Paul discusses the so-called
"human prints" on the previous page. The book suggests that the tracks may
have been made by _Acrocanthosaurus atokensis_ walking plantigrade-fashion,
and that the theropod's toes didn't press down with enough force to show up
in the track.
