Dinosaurs footprints found in Italy



 Dinosaurs footprints found in Italy

ROME (AP) - The discovery of as many as 60 dinosaurs footprints in
the "spur" of the Italian peninsula has added new evidence to the
theory that Italy was once part of a land mass attached to the
African continent, geologists said Tuesday. The three-fingered
footprints, some as long as 18 inches, were found in June in a cave
near San Giovanni Rotondo, in the southeastern region of Puglia, said
Alfonso Bosellini, a geology professor and the head of the group of
researchers who made the recently announced discovery. "It is not as
if you can be 100 percent sure, but at this point it is highly
probable that Italy was connected to Africa," Bosellini told AP. See
