Re: Dinosaur Tracks



Brandon:

    As you might imagine, there can be some difficulty and controversy when
determining whether the track is a 'surface track' or an 'under track' or an
'over track'.  To be absolutely certain that you have a 'surface track', you
should be able to see skin impressions in the track.  Otherwise, you have to
base your determination on experience and other clues.  Ray Stanford or Jim
Farlow (both on the Dino list, last time I checked) should be able to
elaborate more than I have.
