THEROPOD TRACK STUDY

A new study of theropod dinosaur prints by scientists
at Brown University shows that foot motions were
preserved in three dimensions when the meat eaters
slopped through mud 210 million years ago. Although
the footprints are similar to those made by birds living
today, there are significant differences in the position of
the big toe, foot posture and hind limb movement.

RED GULCH DINOSAUR TRACKSITE

At BLM's Red Gulch Dinosaur Tracksite, you can find
imprints left by dinosaurs along an ocean shoreline 165
million years ago who were probably looking to pick
up a bite of lunch from what washed up on the last high
tide. The recent discovery of rare fossil footprints on
public lands near the Red Gulch/Alkali National Back
Country Byway close to Shell, Wyoming,could alter
current views about the Sundance Formation and the
paleoenvironment of the Middle Jurassic Period.
