Mongolia, October 1: The footprints of a large dinosaur was found in the deserts of Mongolia. it could be considered as the biggest dinosaur footprints ever recorded which were unearthed in the Gobi Desert, researchers said on Friday. This offered a fresh clue about the giant creatures that roamed around the earth millions of years ago, even before mankind.
A joint Mongolian-Japanese expedition found the giant print, which measures 106 centimetres (42 inches) long and 77 centimetres wide, reports deccanchronicle.com.
One of several footprints discovered in the vast Mongolian desert, the huge fossil was discovered last month in a geologic layer formed between 70 million and 90 million years ago, researchers said.
It was naturally cast, as sand flowed into dents that had been left by the creature stomping on the once muddy ground.
“This is a very rare discovery as it’s a well-preserved fossil footprint that is more than a metre long with imprints of its claws,” said a statement issued by Okayama University of Science.
The Japanese university has been involved in the study with the Mongolian Academy of Science.
