Earth World's Largest Dinosaur Footprints Discovered in Australia

World's Largest Dinosaur Footprints Discovered in Western Australia

AP, 7 April 2017





World's Biggest Dinosaur Footprint

Scientists have published details of the world's biggest dinosaur footprints, found in Western Australia, with the sauropod prints measuring a whopping 1.7 metres.
.
They top a dinosaur footprint found in the Mongolian desert, reported last year, that measured 106cm.

The scientific description of the 1.7-metre footprints has been published by University of Queensland vertebrate palaeontologist Steve Salisbury, in the Memoir of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, after a two- to three-year peer review process.

The footprints were found on the north-western coast of Western Australia, where Dr Salisbury's research project has revealed the journeys of dinosaurs up and down the coast.

"We've got several tracks up in that area that are about 1.7 metres long," Dr Salisbury said.

"So most people would be able to fit inside tracks that big, and they indicate animals that are probably around 5.3 to 5.5 metres at the hip, which is enormous."

The dinosaur that left the prints on what is now sandstone rock platforms, on a remote coastline north of Broome, was the largest member of the sauropods, which includes well-known dinosaurs such as the brontosaurus.

"These animals did exist. They were out there and we're seeing evidence of them having existed in the Kimberley 130 million years ago based on these tracks."


Big Prints and Lots of Them

The 1.7-metre footprints are easily the biggest discovered, and their sheer size meant they were initially overlooked.


"Probably the next biggest footprints are just over a metre," Dr Salisbury said.
"Some of them are so big we didn't really notice them for some time because they're sort of beyond your search image for a dinosaur track."

More remarkable to scientists is that the world's biggest footprints are just one type of about 21 different kinds of dinosaur footprints in the area.

"With 21 different types of tracks represented, that makes it the most diverse dinosaur footprint fauna in the world," Dr Salisbury said.
