Most of these are under-tracks, so they may not accurately represent the
actual size of the pes, however they were still pretty big (up to 1.7
metres). There are also some ornithopod tracks (about 80 cm), which
would indicate some fairly large animals (especially given the "stumpy"
nature of large ornithopod feet).
