316-million-year-old tetrapod tracks (identified as Ichniotherium praesidentis)  are the oldest found in Germany;  discovered in 2012, the site is now marked with a new informational plaque; the animal is thought to have been a diadectomorph, shown in a reconstructed model from a museum; once the research is completed, plans are to display the slab with tracks at the Bergbaumuseum and have a new, more accurate reconstruction of the animal  (in German)
