Self-Guided Tour

#6

Here we see the largest footprint on the site.  Notice the remaining concrete on the left side of the middle toe print.  The toe outlines are distorted due to the break-off of the concrete.  The next footprint made by this dinosaur has a crater around it, due to the displacement of mud from under the foot while compressed.

 

We can tell from the spacing of the footprints this Acrocanthosaurus was traveling about 15MPH, half-speed…not really in a hurry.  All other tracks here are even slower, indicating no one was in a hurry…not being pursued.  Most tracks were not probably made on the same day, or even week or month…maybe years apart with no others around at the same time to chase or be chased.
