Dinosaur Experts Bust Up Prehistoric Party Theory
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - So maybe there was no dinosaur dancing after all.
Paleontologists say there are no signs of dinosaur tracks at a
remote spot along the Utah-Arizona border that was previously
described by University of Utah geologists as a "dinosaur dance
floor" for its density of tracks. <SNIP>
Considering that the geologists claim that they had been studying the site
for two years, could find 4 types of prints, and could formulate behavior
scenarios, it seems ironic that a team of real print experts could dismiss the
dinosaur prints as potholes with one visit. Also, beware of intuition in
"His intuition suddenly told him the Dino tracks depressions were not
erosion-caused potholes, common in sandstone, but rather impressions left by
of dinosaurs. Two years of further study corroborated his hunch, documenting
what may have been a veritable "dinosaur dance floor" recorded in the
three-quarter-acre site, according to findings Seiler published this month in
paleontology journal Palaois."
I wonder who reviewed the paper?
